About this book

In this unique volume, Lampley analyzes the theology of Nat Turner's violent slave rebellion in juxtaposition with Old Testament views of prophetic violence and Jesus' politics of violence in the New Testament and in consideration of the history of Christian violence and the violence embedded in traditional Christian theology.

Reviews

"Karl Lampley has produced the first theological interpretation of Nat Turner's slave rebellion in Virginia. In this impressive investigation, he affirms the Christian dimensions of the revolt while at the same time condemning the inhumane aspects of the violence. He uses this pioneering theological and critical investigation of Turner to raise some larger issues around Christianity, violence, and community. Lampley draws on primary and secondary sources, and engages the Old and New Testaments, as well as different models of theology within the Christian tradition. This book sets the standard." - Dwight N. Hopkins, Editor, The Cambridge Companion to Black Theology
