Blessed and Beautiful
Multiethnic Churches and the Preaching that Sustains Them
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Here is help for those who are dissatisfied with quick, shallow, and finally ineffectual 'y'all come' approaches to the important, difficult task of forming healthy multi-ethnic churches. Lamb provides challenging but hope-giving guidance for thoughtful preachers and congregational leaders who take seriously their calling to honor congregants' diverse histories. Especially noteworthy is her theologically sensitive exploration of the role of memory for ethnic and Christian identity."
--Marguerite Shuster, Senior Professor of Preaching and Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary
"The church is in need of a serious 'come to Jesus moment' to figure out who they are and who they need to be in a changing world. This book does it ingeniously by honoring a community's collective memory at the center. Lamb tackles the issues of preaching in multi-cultural churches with integrity and intentionality that are important both to the future church and in the honoring of memory in those communities."
--Karyn Wiseman, Homiletics Professor at Lutheran Seminary, Philadelphia
