This concise and powerful spiritual biography of such a key figure in the American abolitionist movement adds significantly to our understanding of the man and his work due to the author’s well-executed study of the foundational, pervasive role that Douglass’s Christian faith played in who he was, what he believed, and how he lived. D.H. Dilbeck’s designation of Frederick Douglass as “America’s Prophet” is indeed an accurate assessment of this runaway slave who rose to leadership in the American struggle to end human slavery and advocate for full equality for all Americans.
