"Once again James Cone demonstrates why he is indispensable as an interpreter of faith, race, and the American experience." --Bill Moyers
One of the Top 11 Religion Books of the Year. --Huffington Post
"Based on impressive research, Cone argues that the lynching tree is a viable reality/symbol for reflection on the cross of Christ. According to Cone, understandings of the cross and lynching tree can mutually inform one another and explain how events of trauma and injustice can still inspire hope for the African American community." --Christianity Today

If you are looking for an in-depth history of religious engagement with lynching, this won't be it, but, with Dr. Cone's deep understanding of the subject, I can't think of a better place to begin gaining an understanding of that history.
