God and the Gangs

Paperback
God and the Gangs provides some muchneeded theological tools for an understanding of the rise of the disaffection among black urban youth. In this timely and incisive book, Robert Beckford examines the rise of disaffection among black urban youth. As violent crime and gang warfare increasingly affect many urban communities, Churches often struggle to find appropriate ways to respond to the crises and pastoral needs that are prompted by the growing number of alarming incidents taking place on our streets.
