Working Against the Grain by Anthony G. Reddie

Book Description

Christianity has been both the cause of oppression among Black communities and a source of liberation. Black Christianity has sought solace in the redemptive figure of Christ in its struggle for human dignity and freedom. 'Working Against the Grain' addresses the displacement of Black theology in Diasporan African churches by charismatic and conservative neo-Pentecostalism. The essays present a radical Black theology that empowers disenfranchised Black people whilst challenging White power to see and act differently. 'Working Against the Grain' is an essential text for all those interested in the pursuit of racial justice and other forms of anti-oppressive practice, both inside the church and beyond it.

Books By Author Anthony G. Reddie

Churches, Blackness, and Contested Multiculturalism by Anthony G. Reddie Churches, Blackness, and Contested Multiculturalism, Hardback (June 2014)

This volume assesses contemporary church responses to multicultural diversity and resisted categories of social difference, with a central focus on whether or how racial, ethnic, religious, sexual, and gender differences are validated by churches (and especially black churches) torn between competing inclusive and exclusive tendencies.

Black Theology, Slavery and Contemporary Christianity by Anthony G. Reddie Black Theology, Slavery and Contemporary Christianity, Hardback (August 2010)

Explores the legacy of slavery in Black theological terms. Challenging the dominant approaches to the history and legacy of slavery in the British Empire, this book shows that although the 1807 act abolished the slave trade, it did not end racism, notions of White supremacy, or the demonization of Blackness, Black people and Africa.

Working Against the Grain by Anthony G. Reddie Working Against the Grain, Hardback (December 2008)

Contains essays that outline a different vision for a liberative model of Christianity, built upon the insights of Black Theology. This book argues that a re-imagined Black theology can enable Christianity in particular, and Black Christian faith in general to recapture the radical intent of this globalized religious framework.

Black Theology in Britain by Anthony G. Reddie Black Theology in Britain, Paperback (September 2007)

'Black Theology in Britain' offers the first comprehensive survey of Black theology, tracing its development in Britain from the eighteenth century to today.
