By Alvin Lewis, Ph. D.

Strategies for Educating African American Adults is an engaging, enlightening, and challenging look at how to help Christian adults teach, learn, and prepare for effective ministry in the African American church and community.

Statistically, African American adults attend church, read their Bibles, and pray more than any other segment of our society. For this reason, Strategies for Educating African American Adults is an important reference as it outlines practical, easy-to-follow techniques that will enhance and revive your Christian education program.

After reading this book, you will better understand the heritage and future of Christian education in the Black church, distinguish the characteristics of the Buster, Boomer, and Builder generations, and be better equipped to overcome the obstacles of ministering to families.

“This book is a creative, much needed, and timely contribution to the spiritual health and development of the Black church.”--Dr. James Earl Massey, Dean Emeritus, Anderson University School of Theology
