520    Passionately human, no less divine analyzes the various 
       ways black southerners transformed African American 
       religion in Chicago during their Great Migration 
       northward. A work of religious, urban, and social history,
       it is the first book-length analysis of the new religious 
       practices and traditions in Chicago that were stimulated 
       by migration and urbanization. The book illustrates how 
       the migration launched a new sacred order among blacks in 
       the city that reflected aspects of both Southern black 
       religion and modern city life. This new sacred order was 
       also largely female as African American women constituted 
       more than 70 percent of the membership in most black 
       Protestant churches. Ultimately, Wallace Best demonstrates
       how black southerners imparted a folk religious 
       sensibility to Chicago's black churches. In doing so, they
       ironically recast conceptions of modern, urban African 
       American religion in terms that signified the rural past. 
       In the same way that working class cultural idioms such as
       jazz and the blues emerged in the secular arena as a means
       to represent black modernity, he says, African American 
       religion in Chicago, with its negotiation between the past,
       the present, rural and urban, revealed African American 
       religion in modern form.
