In After Redemption, John Giggie of the University of Alabama has produced an intriguing interpretation of black religion in the Deep South. Focusing on the Arkansas- Mississippi Delta, his book goes beyond political and denominational history to look at how modern technology, new business techniques, and non-church organizations affected the development of black religion. If it does not fully achieve the author's goal "to reperiodicize African American religious history," it does demonstrate that black religion was not an unchanging monolith and that this era was vital for its historical development (p. 4).
