In a straightforward and engrossing manner, Frederick L. Ware conveys the distinct approaches to and the diversity of thought in black theology.
Methodologies of Black Theology provides an outstanding classification and criticism of perspectives in the academic study, interpretation, and construction of black theology in the U.S. from 1969 to the present.
The book establishes and recognizes three different schools of academic black theology:
-- The black hermeneutical school
-- the black philosophical school
-- the human sciences school
Similarities and differences are delineated in the identification of each school's representative thinkers and their views on the tasks, content, sources, norm, method, and goal of black theology.
