The witness of African American religious experience

Knowing Christ Crucified: The Witness of African American Religious Experience (Orbis Books, 2018), a new book by Professor of Theology M. Shawn Copeland, “is a powerful reading of the Cross of Jesus, both as it is written in scripture and in the experience of the poor and oppressed—particularly in the history of black people in America, from the time of slavery up to the present,” according to the publisher. Copeland writes that discipleship calls the faithful to “act in solidarity with all those who suffer social oppression and to join them in the struggle for life and justice.” An award-winning theologian, Copeland also is the author of Enfleshing Freedom: Body, Race, and Being.
