Some of the nation’s most prominent and visible preachers candidly explore the issues faced by African American men in our society. Exposing the struggles that African American men confront daily, often alone in silence, these messages of hope seek to empower men who are attempting to overcome feelings of inadequacy in their roles as husbands, fathers, and employees. Collectively, these messages analyze the social, political, and psychological odds faced by black males and present an awakened spirituality as an alternative to such escapes as drugs, crime, and sexual misconduct.
“This is a powerful collection of inspirational messages aimed at filling a gap in a genre that has been targeted mostly at black women.” – Booklist
“The book openly explores many of the issues faced by Black men in society, such as fighting the wrong enemies, raising another man’s child and living single.” – Ebony magazine
“Darryl Sims does a wonderful job highlighting the state of emergency for African American males living in the U.S. Through the many different sermons all the issues are brought to the forefront that Black men must deal with daily. The contributors are quite forthright in their attack on racism and other sociopolitical realities that prevent Black men from reaching their fullest potential in this country. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to be encouraged and informed and empowered through the words on the pages.” – Jacqueline Glass
