Faith of Our Fathers: An Examination of the Spiritual Life of African and African-American People

By Mumia Abu-Jamal

“Mumia Abu-Jamal has always embodied both political courage and moral commitment of his people and to all humanity. That deep spiritual vision is richly reflected in Faith of our Fathers. For one who has been unjustly imprisoned for so many years to retain faith is remarkable enough in itself. But to produce such a work of stunning insight and thoughtful research, as Mumia has done, is truly inspiring." --Manning Marable, Professor of African-American Studies, Columbia University

"Mumia Abu-Jamal’s Faith of Our Fathers captures black religion’s ambiguity and complexity. Well-researched and lucidly written, his insights rest on sound scholarly judgment...this book is a creative engagement by one who knows existentially what it means to search for freedom in chains." --From the Preface by James H. Cone, Briggs Distinguished Professor, Union Theological Seminary
