Hi, do you think that this paragraph needs any correction? Thank you
In this chapter it is indicated that, studies of the black church writen in the 1930s and 1940s mainly focused on a) church's excessively devote and energy to social and economic problems, b) reluctancy to attack discrimination and only focusing on religious preaches, c) a poorly-educated and ill-prepared ministers to the situation, and d) overgrowing number of churches that ended in the division of the black community.However, lately studies recognize that a religious spirit was always coming up with political ideals within black churches.
