Noel Erskine and Black Liberation Theology and Book Reviews by Lynwood Walker, Lillian Webb, and James Washington
Society for the Study of Black Religion Collection
Noel Erskine lectures on Black Theology. The discussion includes James Cone’s book “Spirituals and the Blues” as a first sustained attempt from a Black theologian to allow the needs of the Black community to form the shape and content of Black theology. Erskine further describes National Baptist Convention president Dr. J.H. Jackson’s opposition to Marxist theory as an interpretive tool for Black theology. He also calls attention to justification and sanctification both personally and socially within Black theology and the Black Church. Also included is a presentation by Lillian Web and book reviews by Lynwood Walker and Jim Washington.
