Summary
Deals mainly with the history of the African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church in Georgia. Concerned with the church in the twenty-five years following Emancipation it gives a synopsis of the birth of the A.M.E. Church in Philadelphia in 1787 and traces its spread through the South. Church reports, details of Conferences and meetings, discussions on ordination, financial information, church statistics, details of Sunday Schools, and discussions on the future of A.M.E. children present a rounded view of the Church's growth and development. Gaines emphasizes the importance of missionary work in Africa as well as the education of its young people as part of the church's future and destiny
