Abstract:

"With the 1969 publication of the now-classic Black Theology and Black Power, James H. Cone took the Civil Rights struggle to the very soul of America, challenging the theological community with his proposal that Christ's message was in fact one of liberation for oppressed people, but particularly for black Americans. Redemption for Christian white America, and indeed all those in power, lay in the end of racism and the rectification of its debilitating legacy." "Risks of Faith offers for the first time the best of Cone's essays - including several new pieces - and represents the breadth of his life's work."--Jacket.
