Forever in Thy Path: The God of Black Liberation
Only 2 left in stock
In this timely work, Harry Singleton maintains that the God of biblical revelation is today the God of Black liberation, and that the God who acted on behalf of the disinherited in biblical history is the same God whose liberating presence is seen in the contemporary Black liberation struggle today, a liberating presence that will ultimately defeat the historical power of white supremacy. The guarantee of God’s liberating presence is seen not only in the deliverance of the Hebrew slaves from Egypt, but in God’s incarnation, in Jesus, in an oppressed and despised people, thus forging an eternal solidarity that transforms the tragedy of Jesus’ death into a resurrected life that overcomes the power of death. Throughout, Singleton employs the metaphor of “path” to denote of the trek of Black people on their liberating journey from the holds of slave ships, to their ongoing struggle to be free. That path has several dimensions, which form the structure of this work: the path of freedom, conversion, obedience, righteousness, justice, liberation, and eternity, all indispensable in the quest for human liberation.
