I am a religion major who just completed a Christian ethnics course using the book called African American Christian Ethics, by Samuel K. Roberts. The last assignment given by the professor was to write a review on this book. Here goes!

The book starts out strong, clear, and concise, as Roberts begins by stating his purpose of looking for a Christian ethic within the particularity of the African American experience. In the first part of the book he labors, successfully, to lay a foundation that encompasses the history of Africans being brought into America as slaves. He does an excellent job of relating the reason and manner in which Christianity was eventually offered to these slaves, and he identifies the particular way in which Africans were able to identify with the person of Jesus, and make Christianity their own particular religion. Roberts supports his discourse by introducing and tying in the theology of influential black theologians and thinkers, he also supports his work through the use of old Negro Spirituals, and selective Scripture interpretations.

The second part of the book is also well written, continuing basically in the same manner as the first part. Roberts continues to pull in the black theological voices of James Cone, Albert Cleage Jr., Major R. Jones, Gayraud S. Wilmore, and others. He continues to use the Negro Spirituals in this section, and he does an excellent job of discussing in great detail the various African American Christian denominations and how they came into being. It is the last part of the book that falls short, in my opinion.
