Bonhoeffer's Black Jesus
Full Product Description
In this book author Reggie L. Williams follows Bonhoeffer as he defies Germany with Harlems black Jesus. The Christology Bonhoeffer learned in Harlems churches featured a black Christ who suffered with African Americans in their struggle against systemic injustice and racial violenceand then resisted. In the pews of the Abyssinian Baptist Church, under the leadership of Adam Clayton Powell, Sr., Bonhoeffer absorbed the Christianity of the Harlem Renaissance. This Christianity included a Jesus who stands with the oppressed rather than joins the oppressors and a theology that challenges the way God can be used to underwrite a union of race and religion.
Bonhoeffers Black Jesus argues that the black American narrative led Dietrich Bonhoeffer to the truth that obedience to Jesus requires concrete historical action. This ethic of resistance not only indicted the church of the German Volk, but also continues to shape the nature of Christian discipleship today.
Bonhoeffer's Black Jesus by Reggie L. Williams was published by Baylor University Press in November 2014. The ISBN for Bonhoeffer's Black Jesus is 9781602588059.
