Charles Long and Calvin Morris book Review of “Prophecy Deliverance” and “There is a River”
Society for the Study of Black Religion Collection
In a continued review of Cornel West’s “Prophecy Deliverance” Charles Long describes how the terms primitive and civilized are the creation of discourse. He further explains the importance of Black religion creating new discourses that will adequately express Black reality and human reality. Calvin Morris also gives a book review of Vincent Harding’s “There is a River.” Morris considers and responds to the three main motifs of Harding’s work. He identifies those motifs as providence, violence and identity.
