Format: Paperback
This is a essential resource for anyone that has an interest in Religion, History, or Sociology. Christianity and Black Oppression explains much of the reasons for not only the current state of Caribbean society, but also the fate of Africans and African Americans today. This well thought out and researched chronicle is a must read for all communities and age groups.

When this person goes off on tangents, which happens often, about people and experiences in her life that have nothing to do with Christianity, it makes me wonder what this book is really about.
I also find it insulting that she thinks "black people are morally inferior". If that is her opinion about black people and if she thinks that is the way everyone feels then that is really a sad and ridiculous assumption on her part. And what about black people who are Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Aethiest etc how do they fit in her narrow minded viewpoint, although I hope she spares the world anymore of her indiscriminate blanket statements about people and their religion based on her limited life experience. I guess she has no major bones to pick to further insult these people and their religion as well.
This book is quite amateurish and not worth the time or money to read.

Format: Paperback
Green's book, Christianity and Black Oppression adds an important perspective to the understanding of Christianity and the Black Experience. She provides an argument that positions Blacks as outcasts within the Christian religion and culture, and highlights the
fragile structures in which black Christians have had to use to bridge the gap between faith and experience. Green's argument is brave and compelling. One is left to grapple with questions such as: Whose interest are served by Christian morality, when Christianity is examined as a whole in "terms of its history, doctrines, and precepts"? and Is the reality of continued Black oppression and suffering in the presence of "a benevolent God who intervenes in peoples' lives a sign of 'divine racism'"? I look forward to reading this book with others because of the rich dialogue it encourages.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Breathtaking indictment of the Christian religion as it has been sold to the peoples of African Heritage, blacks were, and still are on the bottom of the totem pole when it comes to religion. They are seemingly incapable of being redeemed from their savagery, their pagan natures and of course their blackness, forever on their knees to a white god. Even though they try to re-purpose the Jesus/God duo as black, we all know that the package and the sell is that these deities are culturally white, christianity was never meant to include blacks and will also leave blacks on the other side of the velvet rope. The abuses far outweigh any good this mess brings.
