A Black Theology of Liberation
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
