African American theology has a long and important history. It has provided a way to think about religion's role in private and public life, as well as shaping the language used to communicate some of the most pressing and important issues of the day. The Oxford Handbook of African American Theology brings together leading scholars in the field to present a critical and comprehensive analysis of African American Theology in its many forms and contexts. This Oxford Handbook provides an interdisciplinary examination of the nature, content, and meaning of this form of theology.The reasoning behind contemporary African American theology--its purpose, its audience, its relationship to key religious and "secular" issues--is often assumed; but, little attention over the past several decades has been given to a sustained unpacking of these issues.This formative collection offers current scholarship on African American Theology and scripture, eschatology, Christology, womanist theology, sexuality, ontology, the global economy, and much more. The almost forty essays herein develop influential and pathbreaking discussions on the sources, doctrines, and pressing debates and challenges that shape black and womanist theologies.The Oxford Handbook of African American Theology is an authoritative and useful resource for students and scholars for years to come.Table of ContentsIntroductionAnthony B.
