Recommends it for: A select few
If you don't know the history behind this, you won't understand it. This is an absolutely fantastic book, and pretty much the only book of its nature to date. It's a ground breaking work in the black religious experience. No one - especially not white scholars - had ever ventured into this world before. Somehow, Fauset gets people to open up, he allows us all a peak into this world. I would only recommend this if you are interested in black religious history and American racial history.
