About the Author
One of the most respected preachers in the nation, Marvin A. McMickle, DMin, PhD, served as pastor of Antioch Baptist Church in Cleveland, Ohio for nearly twenty-five years before becoming president of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School in Rochester, New York in January 2012. No stranger to academia, McMickle previously served as professor of homiletics at Ashland Theological Seminary and in 2009, spent a semester as a visiting professor at Yale University Divinity School. He also taught at Case Western Reserve, Cleveland State, Princeton and Fordham universities.
This new book by best-selling author Rev. Dr. Marvin McMickle (now president of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School) is a rich and provocative exploration of the Baptist distinctive of separation of church and state and its historic expression in the social justice traditions of the African American church. Featuring historical examples as well as personal experiences, Dr. McMickle argues for the vital role of the preacher, not only in prophetic preaching and teaching on social issues but also in serving the community and challenging the government, whether from within or without.
A prolific author, McMickle has more than a dozen books to his credit, including resources on preaching, ministry, and African American history.
