"With nearly 200 entries on the people, places and theological developments of the black church in America, Marvin McMickle's An Encyclopedia of African American Christian Heritage provides a valuable historical resource. Despite the title, the entries are not exclusively Christian; controversial prophets such as Father Divine, Charles "Daddy" Grace and the Noble Drew Ali join traditional church leaders like Howard Thurman and Adam Clayton Powell. One especially welcome feature that distinguishes this from other reference books on African-American Christianity is its up-to-date inclusion of current leaders such as Cornel West, T.D. Jakes and Katie Cannon."—Publishers Weekly
