about

Everyday Christians need practical and accessible theology.

In this handbook first published in 1890, Charles Octavius Boothe simply and beautifully lays out the basics of theology for common people. "Before the charge 'know thyself,'" Boothe wrote, "ought to come the far greater charge, 'know thy God.'" He brought the heights of academic theology down to everyday language, and he helps us do the same today.

Plain Theology for Plain People shows that evangelicalism needs the wisdom and experience of African American Christians.

Walter R. Strickland II reintroduces this forgotten masterpiece for today.

Editorial Reviews

Any given Sunday in some black churches, a member of the congregation may encourage the pastor by saying, "Make it plain, preacher!" In Plain Theology for Plain People, Charles Octavious Boothe makes plain a systematic theology that is both faithful to biblical orthodoxy and responsive to the particular interests of black Christians. I am thankful to God that Walter Strickland discovered this literary jewel and now shares it with the contemporary people of the Lord. Too often, the black church is mischaracterized as being emotionally rich and intellectually shallow. Plain Theology shows this to be a harmful stereotype. All disciples of Jesus Christ interested in how to, in the words of Robert Smith Jr., make doctrine dance should read this book and apply it to the preaching of the plain and pure gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
