A Chapel Highlight

Dean Powery Publishes 'Were You There?'

Duke Chapel Dean Luke A. Powery, an associate professor of homiletics at Duke Divinity School, has published a new book Were You There? Lenten Reflections on the Spirituals. In these devotions for the season of Lent, Dean Powery leads the reader through the spirituals as they confront the mystery of Christ’s atoning death and victory over the grave. Each selection includes the lyrics of the spiritual, a reflection by the author on the spiritual’s meaning, a Scripture verse related to that meaning, and a brief prayer. Learn more.
