African American theology has a long and important history. With modern roots in the civil rights movements of the 1960s, African American theology has gone beyond issues of justice and social transformation to participate in broader dialogues of theological inquiry. The Oxford Handbook of African American Theology brings together leading scholars in the field to offer a critical and comprehensive analysis of this theological tradition in its many forms and contexts. Using an interdisciplinary approach, this Oxford Handbook examines the nature, structures, and functions of African American Theology. The volume surveys the field by highlighting its sources, doctrines, internal debates, current challenges, and future prospects in order to present key topics related to the wider palette of Black Religion in a sustained scholarly format. This formative collection presents current scholarship on African American Theology and scripture, eschatology, Christology, womanist theology, sexuality, ontology, the global economy, and much more. The contributors represent a diverse set of faith perspectives, adding to the layered discourses within the volume. These essays further important discussions on the pressing debates and challenges that shape black and womanist theologies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There is much to explore and celebrate about this long overdue update to the vast scope of African American theology, past and future. To be sure, this volume is for scholars and serious students as it offers an important, valid and expanded view of doctrines, internal debates and on-going challenges. To this end, the handbook's strength lies in its structure and in its use of womanist scholarship as more than an addendum, but rather as valuable and necessary contributors to African American theology. * Clemette Haskins, Anglican and Episcopal History *
This text on African American theology provides an internal critique of theory and practice as well as an exposition of key themes from an African American perspective. It is an indispensable resource for all who are in conversation with Black and womanist theologians. * Noel Leo Erskine, Black Theology: An International Journal *
