"Anthony Bradley's analysis of black liberation theology is by far the best thing that I have read on the subject. Anthony's book is comprehensive and in-depth. He covers all of the bases, and thereby provides the reader with all of the information that he needs to understand the critical issues involved with black liberation theology. By covering such figures as James Cone, Cornell West, and Jeremiah Wright, we see all of the nuances involved with their approaches to the subject. His explanation of victimology, Marxism, and aberrant Christian doctrine make a noxious mix of ideas that would make any true Christian wary of anything even approaching black liberation theology. His keen insight into these ideas and his clarity of writing make this book a jewel. Anthony has done the Christian community a great service by writing this book. There was a significant need for a work of this type and its arrival is long overdue."
—Craig Vincent Mitchell, Assistant Professor of Christian Ethics, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
"I have read a number of books which purport to explain, define, or critique black liberation theology, but Liberating Black Theology is the easiest to understand. This is because Dr. Bradley unapologetically maintains a biblical, orthodox perspective while being sympathetic to the issues and concerns of black liberation theologians. The book should be required reading for any seminary class on biblical interpretation and for seminary students and pastors interested in understanding the history and struggles of the black church in America."
—Wy Plummer, African American Ministries Coordinator, Mission to North America, Presbyterian Church in America
"With irenic tone Bradley reveals the theological justification of racial separation inherent within the victimization philosophy of both first generation and second generation black theology. His analysis demonstrates how the vision of Cone and his intellectual offspring contributes to rather than resolves DuBois' problem of the twentieth (now twenty-first!) century."
—Eric C. Redmond, Bible Professor in Residence, New Canaan Baptist Church

I am looking forward to reading this book. My preview indicates that it is just what I need for my dissertation as a source. It will definitely be in my bibliography.Published on January 18, 2013 by Hedy
This is a tough read because of the fraud that Black Liberation Theology is. Mr. Bradley did a great job researching the book, but the content is so incredibly negative. Read morePublished on May 6, 2012 by Rudy F. Ochoa
This work is a critique of Liberation Theology and in no way examines African-American Christian worship in the United States. Read morePublished on September 12, 2011 by Philip S. Roeda
