Summary
"The second edition of Joy Unspeakable focuses on the black church and points toward a mystical and communal spirituality not within the exclusive domain of any denomination. Holmes's research--through oral histories, church records, and written accounts--details not only ways in which contemplative experience is built into African American collective worship but also the legacy of African monasticism, a history of spiritual exemplars, spiritual and political activism, and unique meditative worship practices"--Cover
