A Sorrowful Joy: The spiritual journey of an African-American man in late twentieth-century America by Albert J. Raboteau
  • Description
  • Reviews

Albert Raboteau tells the remarkable story of his own spiritual journey—a journey marked by sorrow and joy, by conversion and reconciliation. He tells of the murder of his father before he was born, being raised in a devout Roman Catholic African-American family, his education, marriage and career crises, and rebuilding his life following a conversion to Orthodox Christianity.

Now the Henry W. Putnam Professor of Religion at Princeton University, Raboteau has written a particularly American spiritual autobiography with extraordinary power, lyricism and insight that will not fail to touch anyone who picks it up. This book will appeal especially to: African-American readers, members of the Orthodox faith, spiritual seekers, lovers of biography and personal stories.
