e-book- 'Windrush and the black Pentecostal church in Britain' is now available
In this his second book, Roy follows up on the success of 'How to make gospel music work for you' with a timely, portrayal of Caribbean Christians who came to Britain in the 1950s and 60s as part of the 'Windrush Generation.'
In this very readable book, Roy tells a personal story of growing up in a Black Pentecostal home in Britain, explains why his parents like many of their generation, left the Caribbean to help in the reconstruction of Britain, and how this move provided the chance of a better life for them and their families.
Roy paints a vivid picture of the country his parents came too, explain how they lived, the problems they faced, the religious climate they found, the music they came with and how as Christians they practised their faith and started their churches in Britain.
In this book, Roy also tells another equally important story of African Christians coming to Britain and shows how in a short time they helped to change the religious life of the country and shows how their experiences mirrors that of the Caribbean experiences, and consider some of the problems they are likely to face in the future.
