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.
