This commemorative collection of sermons by young African American preachers is anchored in gratitude to the strong and deeply-rooted Black religious experience. While several studies speak to the disillusionment of millennials towards formalized religion, Generation to Generation shows a generation of leaders wrestling with "what sayeth the Lord?" in a world so desperately in need of reconciliation and the saving message of Jesus Christ.
Part of the Academy of Preachers Sermon Series, Dwight A. Moody, general editor
