Publisher's Summary

In his reflections on God, Jesus, suffering, and liberation, James H. Cone relates the gospel message to the experience of the Black community. But a wider theme of the book is the role that social and historical context plays in framing the questions we address to God as well as the mode of the answers provided.

Unbearable whistling sound!

Every time the narrator speaks a word containing the letter S I cringe. It produces an unbearable whistling sound, that's like nails on a chalkboard! They really should have done a better job of fixing that. It ruins the book.

Jesus is a Black Man?!.

I love this book. I recently discovered the author In my graduate studies class. I have been wondering about if they were two different Jesus. Dr. con CONE help me to understand that Jesus is intimately connected to the oppressed in every culture. I’m so thankful for that came to understand Dr. Cohen‘s approach to scripture. I recommend this book for every theology student especially those who are Working in the black culture and church contacts is a must read for you. The reader did an excellent job.

Powerful and poignant

I cannot say enough about doctor James Combs writing. He is a great theologian and scholar par excellent o and has proven again why his writings are so important to the religious community. This book shows you the depths of liberation and its interconnectedness and ro the oppressed.

Sound quality

While the performance and book were wonderful, the sound quality wasn’t great. I would recommend this, but I wish it could be reworked so the ‘s’ sounds weren’t so harsh.
