“Writing God’s Obituary is a story of liberation and redemption but not of the customary kind. Writing with eloquence and authenticity, Anthony Pinn shares his journey of deliverance from traditional religious practice. . . . His is a story that will appeal to anyone who has struggled with questions of faith or navigated the complexities of race.”
—William F. Schulz, former president of the Unitarian Universalist Association
“A powerful story of a spiritual journey from a boy evangelical preacher to a brilliant, intellectual humanist. This is a much-needed challenge to the faith of black Christians and others, especially theologians.”
—James H. Cone , Charles A. Briggs Distinguished Professor of Systematic Theology, Union Theological Seminary, and author of A Black Theology of Liberation
