Overview

Everyday Christians need practical and accessible theology.

In this handbook first published in 1890, Charles Octavius Boothe simply and beautifully lays out the basics of theology for common people. "Before the charge 'know thyself,'" Boothe wrote, "ought to come the far greater charge, 'know thy God.'" He brought the heights of academic theology down to everyday language, and he helps us do the same today.

Plain Theology for Plain People shows that evangelicalism needs the wisdom and experience of African American Christians.

Walter R. Strickland II reintroduces this forgotten masterpiece for today.
