Product Description

Original and far reaching, this book shows the resources for Black theology within the rich ad living tradition of African-American religion and culture. Beginning with the slave narratives, Hopkins shows how slaves received their masters' faith and transformed it into a gospel of liberation. Then from such folk traditions as the stories of Brer Rabbit, Hopkins uncovers and implicit theology that casts down the mighty and uplifts the lowly. From the experience of women, especially as depicted in the novels of Toni Morrison, Hopkins discerns the features of "womanist" theology.
