With the publication of his two early works, Black Theology & Black Power (1969) and A Black Theology of Liberation (1970), James Cone emerged as one of the most creative and provocative theological voices in North America. These books, which offered a searing indictment of white theology and society, introduced a radical reappraisal of the Christian message for our time.

Combining the visions of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr., Cone radically reappraised Christianity from the perspective of the oppressed black community in North America. Forty years later, his work retains its original power, enhanced now by reflections on the evolution of his own thinking and of black theology and on the needs of the present moment.

User Review  - Dave Pettengill - Goodreads

I am examining this book under the circumstances in which it was written but it is still difficult to read. I have a difficult time when people try to make the gospel all centered on one specific social/religious issue and this book does exactly that regarding race. Read full review
