Forever In Thy Path$26.00Add to cart
Forever in Thy Path makes the case that the God of biblical revelation is today’s God of black liberation and that black liberation will realize itself given that the eternal power of God’s liberating presence will ultimately defeat the historical power of white supremacy. In this book the author employs “path” as a metaphor to denote the trek of black people on its liberating journey from the holds of ships to today. It affirms black strivings for freedom as consistent with divine will despite those strivings’ branding as iconoclastic and ungodly by the white Christian establishment.
Black Theology And Ideology$24.95Add to cart
Combining the theological methods of Juan Luis Segundo and James H. Cone, Harry Singleton sheds new light on the impact of race on the origin and development of theology in America.
In Black Theology and Ideology Singleton appropriates Segundo’s method of deideologization to argue that relevant theological reflection must expose religio-political ideologies that justify human oppression in the name of God as a distortion of the gospel and counter them with new theological presuppositions rooted in liberation. Singleton then contextualizes Segundo’s method by offering the theology of James Cone as the most viable example of such a theological perspective in America.
Chapters are “The Black Experience and the Emergence of Ideological Suspicion,” “The Western Intellectual Tradition and Ideological Suspicion,” “Hermeneutical Methodology and the Emergence of Exegetical Suspicion,” “A New Hermeneutic,” and “The Case for Indigenous Deideologization.”
