Second edition, revised. Sticker ghost on publisher slipcase. Spine of Volume 1 creased.
ix, 462; ix, 450 pp. Two volume set in publisher slipcase. First published in 1979, this is the classic sourcebook for the emergence of Black Thelogy in the United States. Born out of the Civil Rights Movement and the emerging demand for Black Power, Black Theology has tried for 25 years to relate the gospel to the African-American experience of oppression and struggle for liberation. This revised volume contains a new introduction, many additional essays, and a revised bibliography. Volume II brings the development of Black Theology up to date, covering the relevance of Black Theology to pastoral ministry, Black biblical interpretation, womanist theology, and the increased dialogue with other third-world theologies.
