Download The Decline of African American Theology ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Who were Jupiter Hammon Lemuel Haynes and Daniel Alexander Payne And what do they have in common with Martin Luther King Jr Howard Thurman and James Cone All of these were African American Christian theologians yet their theologies are in many ways worlds apart In this book Thabiti Anyabwile offers a challenging and provocative assessment of the history of A. I initially found the structure of the chapters made it difficult to delve into the book However I think the author provides very valuable commentary on the history of African American theology As someone who is black and British it has sometimes been depressing to note the trajetory of theology and practice of the black church in the USA especially as it has such far reaching influence on the beliefs and practice of professing Christians from the African diaspora worldwide and on indigenous black Africans However this book redressed the general lack of historical information on faithful Bible believing teachers among black Americans in the past few centuries and clearly pointed out the development of doctrinal decline Liberalism and radicalism seem to have influenced African American theology deeply however the church in America which derives from a Northern European ethnicity has also been deeply affected by liberalism I think the impact of racism in preventing US born blacks from accessing Evangelical seminaries is probably underplayed in this book However the resilience of poor African Americans with little access to literacy and education in developing a solid evangelical theology shines through God s grace is shown to be sufficient in the face of injustice The wisdom and maturity of these faithful men and women under persecution is demonstrated In addition Anyabwile clearly demonstrates the dangers of removing the gospel distinctives and of devaluing the word of God so as to defend a cause He traces the downward trajectory of preachers who moved the doctrinal goalposts in order to prove their point when their faith was tested under the injustice of slavery and racial segregation These theologians tried to change the nature of God man and the meaning of the gospel to suit their revolutionary ideals and in doing so shipwrecked their own faith and that of others who believed their skewed message A very good read even though not an easy read for me
