Book description

This volume discusses normative theological categories from a black perspective and argues that there is no major Christian doctrine on which black theology has not commented. Part One explores introductory questions such as: what have been the historical and social factors fostering a black theology, and what are some of the internal factors key to its growth? Part Two examines major doctrines which have been important for black theology in terms of clarifying key intellectual foci common to the study of religion. The final part discusses black theology as a world-wide development constituted by interdisciplinary approaches. The volume has an important role in bringing Christian thought into confrontation with one of the central challenges of modernity, namely the problem of race and racism. This Companion puts theological themes in conversation with issues of ethnicity, gender, social analysis, politics and class and is ideal for undergraduate and graduate students.


'This volume is a welcome addition to the Cambridge Companions to Religion, and one does not need to be black, or a theologian, or even a Christian, to find it of great interest.'

David Geall Source: Reference Reviews

'Bringing together insights from theologians, ethicists, and clergy, editors Hopkins and Antonio explore the critical categories that comprise black theology … the text is broad in scope and will be a wonderful addition to the libraries of students of religion, as well as any interested reader interested in grasping the normative subject matter and themes of black theology.'
