9781563383984: Black Religion, Black Theology: The Collected Essays of J. Deotis Roberts (African American Religious Thought and Life)

This is the first collection of the essays by J. Deotis Roberts, one of the most respected and influential figures in modern American theology. Roberts has spent much of his distinguished career doing theology in the service of the church. His desire has always been to influence church, academy, and world so that all may participate in the Kingdom of God. He has steered a middle way between the deadly metaphysical approach of some theology and the often unthoughtful pragmatism of Black religious studies that focuses only on social relevance.This book gathers Roberts' most important essays, arranged to show the development of his thinking. They reveal his commitment to the church and to his theological model of liberation-reconciliation. Theology is free, Roberts writes, because it moves one toward a fuller realization of what God is calling one to do; Christian theology is reconciling because Christians are reconciled to God through Christ and are called to a ministry of reconciliation. J. Deotis Roberts has served as president of the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, and has taught at numerous institutions including Duke Divinity School and Howard Divinity School. His books include Quest for a Black Theology and Liberation and Reconciliation: A Black Theology. He currently lives in Silver Spring, Maryland.David Emmanuel Goatley is the Executive Secretary-Treasurer for the Lott-Carey Baptist Foreign Mission Committee in Washington, D.C.

Review:

"In this splendid volume, the best essays of Roberts ae brought together for the first time. Carefully selected and edited, they clearly show that Roberts deserves a place in the canon of great American theologians."—Lewis V. Baldwin, Professor of Religious Studies, Vanderbilt University (Lewis V. Baldwin)

"Twentieth-century American theology would be unrecognizable different without J. Deotis Roberts. This explains the significance of this collection of essays, which highlights the main theological and philosophical questions which have engaged Robert's attention over the last half of the century."—Lewis V. Baldwin, Professor of Religious Studies, Vanderbilt University (Lewis V. Baldwin)

"David Goatley has done a great service in presenting in one volume the best essays of one of the America's great philosophical theologians. Roberts speaks through this work in strikingly lucid and provocative ways, demonstrating a marked capacity to relate the profundities of theology and philosophy to the existential realities of human life."—Lewis V. Baldwin, Professor of Religious Studies, Vanderbilt University (Lewis V. Baldwin)

“...the editor carefully selects the best of Roberts’s essays and thereby invites the reader into the discovery of why Roberts deserves a place in the hall of great American theologians.... The reader will find this a powerful book, arranged to show the development of Roberts’s thinking and the revelation of his theological commitments to the church.” –Michael Battle, Anglican Theological Review, Vol. 86, No. 2, Spring 2004 (Anglican Theological Review)

"This book constitutes an excellent introduction to the theological thought of J. Deotis Roberts, one of America's premier black theologians. The editor's careful selection from Robert's works provides a meaningful portrait of a black scholar's theological development over a period of three decades. Both the breadth and depth of this book makes it an invaluable resource for scholars, students, clergy and laity interested in discovering the significance of black religion, black theology, and African consciousness for our day."—Peter J. Paris, Elmer G. Homrighausen Professor, Christian Social Ethics, Princeton Theological Seminary (Peter J. Paris)
