Editorial Reviews

Review

"An eloquently crafted outline, Evans's book also introduces readers to the scope and richness of religious belief in African American communities. It demands a place in any of our seminaries introductory courses in theology. While elucidating the conceptual framework for a people's practice of freedom, the book also deftly challenges the hegemonic pedagogies that neglect, marginalize, or trivialize serious study of African American beliefs within what the church has called systematic theology. " --Mark Kline Taylor, Princeton Theological Seminary

"James Evans's We Have Been Believers is an important book on black theology. It will be useful for both the church and the academy. I recommend it highly." --James H. Cone, Union Theological Seminary, New York City

"In this second edition of James Evans's seminal work, the theology of the Black Church emerges as a unique, relevant, and dialogical response to the realities of this present age. The addition of new essays focused on the influence of womanist thought, the evangelical movement, and prophetic black church leadership will inspire another generation of believers in the academy and in the pews." --Barbara Holmes, Memphis Theological Seminary

"The importance of a classic, like James Evans's We Have Been Believers, is not that it is timeless but that it continues to speak to the present and to make contributions to it. In the midst of widespread theological accommodation to the powers that be, Evans blazes alternative trails that are still worth following not only in the black churches but in all churches, inviting us to take our own struggles for liberation and the divine as seriously as the African-American communities that have gone before us." --Joerg Rieger, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
