Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. will forever be linked to the historical 2008 presidential campaign of then Senator Barack Obama. Although unwillingly thrust into the spotlight, the media attention could never overshadow Wright’s prophetic teachings, nor does it define his life and ministry. The Book of Jeremiah: The Life and Ministry of Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. examines the man, an African American, a patriot who served his country, a scholar, a prophet, and a pastor. The relevance of his ministry extends far beyond his pastorate at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, reaching a global stage with a message of liberation and justice.
Susan Williams Smith provides a comprehensive picture of Wright, shedding light on his upbringing, teaching, and preaching influences, and the far reaching effects of his ministry on Barack Obama and the world.
