Rev. Wyatt Tee Walker, Chief of Staff for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., states: "Black Sacred Rhetoric is an invaluable addition to the cultural history of African Americans. Gregory Howard has made an inestimable contribution to understanding the resilience of the Black faith community... As a cultural historian, I welcome this creative and seminal work..." Katie Geneva Cannon, Annie Scales Rogers Professor for Christian Ethics at Union Theological Seminary states: "This commentary is much-needed both in the church and in terms of the ongoing rhetorical conversations taking place in the theological academy. Howard is entirely at ease with the basic principles and assumptions that drive Black Preaching." Rev. Angelo V. Chatmon Director of Church Relations at Virginia Union University states: "Howard presents the linguistic expressions which have emerged out of "Black Preaching" as a theologically credible and contributing partner in the language of preaching."
