So much has been said about September 11, 2001, a date on which the course of history was changed. But much more needs to be said-and heard. Interpretations and commentary from mainstream America have been well represented in the media and on radio talk shows. In this volume, African American church leaders interpret the tragedy from a variety of compelling and inspirational perspectives, hoping to help America see itself more clearly and heal itself more fully in the wake of this national tragedy. From powerful messages to provocative essays to inspirational prayers, these writings reverberate with many of the emotions felt throughout the country and the world. Contributors include T. D. Jakes, Michael Eric Dyson, Jesse Jackson Sr., Gardner Taylor, Calvin Butts and others. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
