“Plenty Good Room: A Lenten Bible Study based on African American Spirituals” is a 6-part series of reflections on scripture and the music that first arose on plantations in the antebellum South. Each 45-minute session will study a spiritual in the light of the Gospel, history, tradition, and experience. A concurrent children’s musical program will accompany the series.
This unique short-term Bible study combines an in-depth look at Scripture, American history, and the music and lyrics of six African American spirituals. The six-session study provides biblical, social, and historical analyses of the spirituals: “Ev’ry Time I Feel the Spirit,” “This Lonesome Valley,” “Bow Down on Your Knees,” “Plenty Good Room,” “Ain’t Dat Good News,” and “Were You There?”
You can order a print or e-book copy of the study guide by clicking on the graphic in this article.

“Plenty Good Room” is offered as part of our Year of Renewal 2017.
