In the end, the question Id want to ask Finn is this: is there nothing wise or insightful or lasting or important about the black Christian experience of the past 200+ years? Yes, the story is complex- yes, the place of the vestiges of an African religious heritage has been overlooked in all manner of ways- yes, the blues can only be understood in context... but is not the black church a part of that context, rather than simply its foil? All of those preachers who were also blues people- do they mean nothing? Talk to me about Blind Willie Johnson and Rev Gary Davis before being so dismissive of the churchs place in culture...An insight-filled yet ultimately frustrating book.
