Product Description

With contributions from notable scholars such as James Cone, Rosemary Radford Ruether, Emilie Townes, D. Stephen Long, and Dwight Hopkins, this intriguing volume invites sustained reflection on the legacy and future of black theology. Given the new ecclesial, social, global, and interreligious contexts shaping and challenging black theology, the contributors respond with their own insights and visions into how black theology relates to black and white churches as well as to various ecumenical, ecological, and existential concerns. This important collection of essays functions as both a tribute and a challenge to black theology as it opens new vistas for African Americans persevering in faith.

Publisher's Description

The advent of black theology in the late 1960s brought together a revolution in the nation's race relations with a new theological reckoning and a reassessment of the black church's legacy of social justice. Now, a generation later, scholars and theologians are taking stock of black theology, not just its immense influence and power but its future shape and purpose. In this volume, sixteen theologians assess the impact and import of black theology and the new challenges presented by today's intellectual, social, religious, and geopolitical situation. Including two chapters by James H. Cone, the pioneer of black theology, the volume examines black theology and the black churches, black theology and the white churches, black theology in light of global religions, and the ongoing spiritual challenges to African Americans today. A major focus of the volume is the contribution of womanist thought. Along with Linda Thomas, contributors include James H. Cone, Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., Lee Butler, Karen E. Mosby-Avery, Rosemary Radford Ruether, D. Stephen Long, Lacey Warner, Jim Perkinson, Jos David Rodriguez, George E. Tinker, Edward P. Antonio, Yvonne Lee, Dwight N. Hopkins, M. Shawn Copeland, and Emilie M. Townes.
