This work is concerned with the way Black Christian formation, because of the acceptance of universal, absolute, and exclusive Christian doctrines, seems to justify and even encourage anti-African sentiment.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Jawanza Eric Clark's Akan-based criticism of Christian dogmatics will edify those who read him. He makes his case for an African-centered hermeneutics skillfully, knowledgeably, and in depth." - Josiah Young, professor of Systematic Theology, Wesley Theological Seminary

"At long last, going beyond the lip-service of many Black theologians who have counted African Religion as a 'source' for the development of their discipline without drawing upon that heritage in specific ways, Jawanza Eric Clark has genuinely and creatively drawn upon the central African religious notion of 'ancestors' in the formulation of Black theological anthropology. This book shows how Black theologians can re-connect with their ancestral roots in ways that make important new developments possible in their message, invigorating a discipline bogged down and tired of repeating the categories formulated in those contexts from which liberation is sought." - Emmanuel Y. Lartey, professor of Pastoral Theology, Care and Counseling, Candler School of Theology
