The Generic Structure of Afro-American Theology and Response by Cornell West and Book Review by Cornell West and Charles Long
Society for the Study of Black Religion Collection
Dr. James Evans gives lecture on the generic structure of Afro-American theology. Dr. Evans discusses the problems of structure, method and content that confront Afro-American theology. He further describes the need for a clear and concise identification and justification of the task of Afro-American theology. Dr. James Evans also describes how Afro-American theology is related to the proclamation of the African American church but not bound by it. In his response Dr. Cornell West raises the question whether or not it is time for foundational and systematic theology to come to an end. He also discusses African American theology and theology in general as a response to paralyzing pluralism. A book review of Dr. West’s book “Prophesy Deliverance” is also included.
