An extremely challenging book to read, especially since Cone does not mince words in the articulation of a theology that must authentically account for latent and overt racism in Christianity and white society in general against African-Americans. Although Cone has modified his stance in subsequent works to be more attentive to nuance in the history and contemporary realities of racism, the rawness of this book is an essential piece of placing the reader (especially the white reader in the US) in the context of what it means to the victim of racism in any form. Nevertheless, some readers may find that it is all too much. But even the effort to read it will bring insight.
