In chapter 1, I described some of the problems that confront religion scholars, especially the relation between tutored and untutored habits of belief. This Coda is a meditation on the Black Church experience that captures, so to speak, the phenomenology of my perception. Along the way, I offer idiosyncratic ref lections on creed. I explore, in short, the assumptions, motives, and methods, the forms of inquiry and evidence that shape my perspective as the author of this book.
