Chapter 1 provides an overview of the book, addressing its focus, methodological approaches, and interpretive frameworks. This chapter introduces the case study church, delineates the book format, and describes the focus of each chapter. In the “call and response” tradition of African American churches, methodology is discussed as “response” to a “call” for ethnography of African American religious life, which transcends stereotypes, goes beyond the study of established Black Independent churches, and incorporates the voices of minoritized people into intellectual discourse that directly reflects and affects their lives. By addressing germane literature, this chapter also positions the study within interpretive frameworks related to: notions of exile; the African Diaspora; African-derived slave religion; the Sanctified Church; the interplay of gender and religion and power in institutionalization; and, the “myth of neutrality” in the ethnographic process.
