Black Nationalism & Theodicy

ISBN: 9781636520018
 Black Nationalism and Theodicy is a comparison of the thought process of Henry Highland Garnet, Alexander Crummell, and Henry McNeal Turner highlighting the necessity for the Black Nationalists to address the issues of unmerited oppression of Black people by developing the theodicies, which make the suffering contextually bearable.  Furthermore, it appears that one important consequence of such theodicies must be the hope of liberation.  Besides, this work develops several meaningful implications for the practice of a specific ministry of the liberation of the African-American community and the practice of liberation and hope to the wider community in general.
