Item description for Stony the Road We Trod: African American Biblical Interpretation (Sources Of Early Christian Thoug) by Cain Hope Felder...
Overview Using postmodern hermeneutical theorization and basing its findings upon the social scientific study of the Hebrew Bible, this singular volume marks the emergence of a critical mass of black biblical scholars. Together they are reshaping and redefining the questions, concerns and scholarship that determine how the Bible is appropriated by church, academy, and the larger society today in relation to liberation theology.

Set the Captives Free Mar 3, 2004
This is an awesome book! It's amazing how most American Christian theologians try to deny the impact of culture and society while promoting a staunch Eurocentric view that whitewashes the bible and which seeks to deny Africans, Asians, and Women their place in the Gospel. They just sustain the economic and political structures that oppress. This goes against the kingdom of God and all its prophets! Look at the current ethnic makeup in the movie, "The Passion of Christ!" Jesus never set foot in Europe and lived in Africa and Asia. Yet, some Christians are busy touting the historical accuracy of the movie!! . When the gospel reached Europe the work on the cross was done and Pentecost has already started!

Though this book is edited by a heavy brother in Cain Hope Felder, each chapter is written by a different black scholar. This makes for some deep and fresh new perspectives of blacks in the bible, the bible itself, and how others see the race through the bible.
Chapters 7 & 10, I found, are the most interesting. Once you get into it, you won't be able to put it down.
Most other books try to talk "around" the bible by comparing it to other ancient writings, but this book goes straight to the source and deals directly with the bible, and its ancient writers and interpreters.
