Living Stones in the Household of God

The advent of black theology in the late 1960s brought together a revolution in the nation's race relations with a new theological reckoning and a reassessment of the black church's legacy of social justice. Now, a generation later, scholars and theologians are taking stock of black theology, not just its immense influence and power but its future shape and purpose. In this volume, sixteen theologians assess the impact and import of black theology and the new challenges presented by today's intellectual, social, religious, and geopolitical situation. Including two chapters by James H. Cone, the pioneer of black theology, the volume examines black theology and the black churches, black theology and the white churches, black theology in light of global religions, and the ongoing spiritual challenges to African Americans today. A major focus of the volume is the contribution of womanist thought. Along with Linda Thomas, contributors include James H. Cone, Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., Lee Butler, Karen E. Mosby-Avery, Rosemary Radford Ruether, D. Stephen Long, Lacey Warner, Jim Perkinson, Jos David Rodriguez, George E. Tinker, Edward P. Antonio, Yvonne Lee, Dwight N. Hopkins, M. Shawn Copeland, and Emilie M. Townes.
