Publisher's Description

African Americans have a rich and compelling Christian heritage—one that stretches back to foundational figures such as the church fathers Augustine and Tertullian. Yet white Christians often expect their black brothers and sisters to embrace a Eurocentric theology that marginalizes their own experiences and traditions.

In this book, Anthony Carter draws both black and Reformed theology together, showing how Reformed theology’s biblical stance addresses African–American experiences such as the horrors of the transatlantic slave trade and oppression by so–called Christians. Carter also explores a few of the ways that an explicitly black theology can enhance our understanding of God and his Word, no matter our ethnicity.

This second edition includes new material: a foreword by Thabiti Anyabwile, an interview with the author, and discussion questions for each chapter.
