Abstract
The central theme of this project is grounded in the assumption that prophetic preaching forms a Christian body with a prophetic consciousness and identity. In order for preaching to be profoundly transformational in the shaping of a faith community's identity, the prophetic preacher must recover an eschatological awareness and urgency. The goal of this project is to explore the matter at hand from the rich African American preaching tradition which has been a conduit of life to a community encircled by life-negating forces.
