about

"By challenging some of the most cherished theological beliefs to emerge within black Christian communities, Pinn encourages us to extend the range of our religious world views and embrace black cultural expressions that have been ignored and despised ... This book marks the debut of an important and exciting new voice in black religious thought." --Michael Eric Dyson, author of Between God and Gangsta Rap "Anthony Pinn's splendid book explores theological texts, folklore, preaching, spirituals, blues, and rap to unleash a tradition of African-American humanism. A remarkable tour de force not to be missed by anyone concerned with the religious and theological problems of evil and suffering." --Terrence W. Tilley, author of The Evils of Theodicy "The book is thought-provoking, schematic, and theologically unsettling. Not since William R. Jones' Is God A White Racist? Has the theodical problem been so central to the critique of African-American theology and ethics." --Religious Studies Review
Anthony B. Pinn is Assistant Professor of Religion at Macalester College, St. Paul, Minnesota and the author of Why Lord? Suffering and Evil in Black Theology (1995) and Varieties of African American Religious Experience (1998).
