Black Theology and Black Power: 50th Anniversary Edition 

James Cone

Orbis Books

First published in 1969, Black Theology and Black Power provided the first systematic presentation of Black Theology, while also introducing the voice of an African American theologian who would shake the foundations of American theology. Relating the militant struggle for liberation with the gospel message of salvation, James Cone laid out the foundation for an interpretation of Christianity from the perspective of the oppressed that retains its urgency and challenge today.

     






Unsettling the Word: Biblical Experiments in Decolonization

Steve Heinrichs

Orbis Books 

For generations, the Bible has been employed by settler colonial societies as a weapon to dispossess Indigenous and racialized peoples of their lands, cultures, and spiritualties.  Given this devastating legacy, many want nothing to do with it.  But is it possible for the exploited and their allies to reclaim the Bible from the dominant powers? In Unsettling the Word, over 60 Indigenous and Settler authors come together to wrestle with the Scriptures, re-imagining the ancient text for the sake of reparative futures.  Read through new lenses, the biblical texts come alive in fresh and surprising ways.
