When Cone wrote Black Theology and Black Power, he signaled to the world that the American black faith tradition would no longer recognize the confines of the church walls as the extent of its purview in society. Cone liberated the Gospel of Christ from its institutionalized forms, unhinging it from oppressive and racist power structures in American society and releasing it to do its work in the public sphere. Black Faith and Public Talk continues Cone's theme of power in the public realm and examines the economic, political, cultural, gender, and theological implications of black faith and black theology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Black Faith and Public Talk is another important step in the maturation of black theology as an academic and ecclesiastical enterprise. --Lewis V. Baldwin, Vanderbilt University
This volume continues Cone's challenge to the appalling silence of American religion and theology on the problems of racism and injustice. Hopkins demonstrates the relevance of black theology to public discourse as well as black theology's intersection with numerous intellectual traditions that exhibit a similar interest in the fulfillment of human being. --Frederick L. Ware, Assistant Professor of Theology, Howard University School of Divinity
