This handbook explores the central theme of Christian faith from various disciplinary approaches and different contexts of black experience in the United States. The central unifying theme is freedom; an important concept both in American culture and Christianity. African American theology represents a Christian understanding of God’s freedom and the good news of God’s call for all humankind to enter life—true human identity and moral responsibility—in genuine and just community. Contributors to the volume argue that African American theology highlights how racism and other intersecting forms of oppression complicate the human predicament; and that their eradication requires an expansion of salvation to include the liberation of persons who lack full participation in society and enjoyment of the good (and goods) made possible by that society. The essays in this handbook employ the tools of biblical criticism, history, cultural and social analysis, religious studies, philosophy, and systematic theology, in order to explore and assess the nature and impact of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, immigration, and cultural and moral pluralism in America—as well as the intersections between African American and African diasporan religious thought and life.

Associate Professor Frederick L. Ware (Howard University School of Theology, USA), Dr Antonia Michelle Daymond (Independent Scholar, USA), Dr Eric Lewis Williams (Harvard University, USA)
