The Book of Jeremiah: The Life and Ministry of Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.
The Book of Jeremiah: The Life and Ministry of Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. by Susan Williams Smith
Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. will forever be linked to the historical 2008 presidential campaign of the Senator Barack Obama. Although unwillingly thrust into the spotlight, the media attention could never overshadow Wright's prophetic teachings, nor does it define his life and ministry. The Book of Jeremiah examines Wright as a man, an African American, a patriot who served his country, a scholar, a prophet, and as a pastor. The relevance of his ministry reaches far beyond his pastorate at Trinity United Church of Christ. It has transcended to a global stage with a message of liberation and justice. In the most comprehensive picture of Rev. Wright, Smith, a close confidante, sheds light on his upbringing, teaching and preaching influences, preaching, and the far reaching effects of his ministry on Barack Obama and the world.
