A COMPREHENSIVE EXPLORATION OF HOW THE BLACK CHURCH TRADITION – GOSPEL HAYMANOT – SHAPES THE WORLDVIEW OF BLACK THEOLOGIANS.
The primary paradigms that exist in theological academia are rooted in white, Eurocentricity and do not speak to the realities of Black Christians. Though many books critique the problem of white supremacy in evangelicalism, most are focused on reforming this movement without attention to the resources of the Black Church.
Through seven dominant voices in Black academic theology, Gospel Haymanot sheds new light on biblical authority issues, doctrinal orthodoxy, and evangelical theology on justice and liberation. This book introduces ideals ingrained in the Black Church tradition which engage the Black Christian experience.
Gospel Haymanot provides essential framing for Black academics and the broader Church who are committed to biblical orthodoxy and Black liberation.
“It has long been the case that the church is the most important institution in the black community…Bantu begins this work among ancient Black peoples and brings the peculiar work of the Spirit into the present.”
