Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this unique collaboration, the most prized and esteemed scholars in theology, religious history, and sociology offer a new understanding of American spiritual life by placing African-American religious experience at its center. Moving from specific cases in African-American history and theology to discussions of how African-American experiences can and should inform all studies of American life, they uncover the spiritual human soul that unites all of us. The editors call this project a "testament of hope," and it is a powerful tribute to the late James M. Washington, whose works were an inspirational search for universality.

Contributors include James H. Cone, David D. Daniels III, Walter E. Fluker, Cheryl Townsend Gilkes, E. Lee Hancock, Dale T. Irvin, Carolyn Ann Knight, Charles H. Long, Sandy Dwayne Martin, Genna Rae McNeil, Richard Newman, Albert J. Raboteau, Gary V. Simpson, Mark V.C. Taylor, Judith Weisenfeld, and Lucas Wilson.

Synopsis:

A collaborative theology built on African-American religious experience and American spiritual life <BR> Judith Weisenfeld, Albert J. Raboteau, Charles Long, James H. Cone, and many other prized and esteemed voices collaborate to build a new theology based on the African-American religious experience and America's religious landscape. Moving from studies of specific cases in African-American history and theology to discussions of how African-American experiences can and should inform all studies of American life, they uncover the spiritual human soul that unites us and transcends the accidents of the racial, economic, and social identities that keep us apart. The editors call this project a "testament of hope," and it is a powerful tribute to the late James M. Washington, whose intellectual projects, including Conversations with God: Two Centuries of Prayer by African-Americans, were an inspirational search for universality.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 229-254) and index.
