About this book

Baker-Fletcher explores the Bible as a uniquely authoritative text within the context of Black church worship and service to the world, as well as analysing the Bible's central role in three forms of witness: translation, proclamation, and empowerment.

Reviews

"This groundbreaking work by Garth Kasimu Baker-Fletcher is timely and needed. As many are revisiting both the sources and methods of Black Theology, this book brings a needed reminder that engagement with the biblical text as having a primary authority is absolutely necessary if a theology is to speak authentically from and for the Black Christian tradition. I would recommend this book for classes in Black Theology and others that seek to explore theology and the Black Church." - Stephen G. Ray Jr., Neal and Ila Fisher Professor of Theology and Professor of Systematic Theology, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
