Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Inspired by a vision to nurture African-American pastors and leaders for effective ministry, Dr. Carter presents a model for theological education that addresses both the challenges and the opportunities of this task. He provides an informative historical review, a biblical and theological perspective, and his personal experience related to the topic. Finally, he draws upon his research to offer practical recommendations to address this opportunity. The reader will find his study informative with significant implications for the ministerial formation of African-Americans."
