it was amazing
bookshelves: christian-theology
Read in November, 2008

This book by Dr. Cone was amazing. It is not reciprocal hatred as some poster tried to put it. It is Cone's attempt to make the Christian Gospel relevant to African-Americans in the environment in which they lived. This work by Dr. Cone, I think, is relevant to any group that is marginalized by the powers of a society. He doesn't claim (or care) that Christ is black-but unreservedly claims that Christ ALWAYS identifies with the powerless in a society against those with all the power.

Freddie After a very long debate under Eugene's comment section, he deleted all the posts because he lost. Therefore, he should have no voice under mine.
