The Decline of African American Theology

From Biblical Faith to Cultural Accommodation
  • By Thabiti M. Anyabwile
Product Description
Who were Jupiter Hammon, Lemuel Haynes and Daniel Alexander Payne?  And what do they have in common with Martin Luther King Jr., Howard Thurman and James Cone?  All of these were African American Christian theologians, yet their theologies are, in many ways, worlds apart.

In this book, Thabiti Anyabwile offers a challenging and provocative assessment of the history of African American Christian theology, from its earliest beginnings to the present.  He argues trechantly that the modern fruit of African American theology has fallen far from the tree of its early predecessors.  In doing so, Anyabwile closely examines the theological commitments of prominent African American theologians throughout American history.  Chapter by chapter, he traces what he sees as the theological decline of African American theology from one generation to the next, concluding with an unflinching examination of several contemporary figures. 

Replete with primary texts and illustrations, this book is a gold mine for any reader interested in the history of African American Christianity. 

With a foreword by Mark Noll.
