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 Black & Reformed, 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.
