Reviews - What do customers think about Emancipation Still Comin': Explorations in Caribbean Emancipatory Theology?
Crisp, engaging prose and fascinating subject matter May 21, 1999
"Emancipation Still Comin'" is a fascinating exploration of the role of theology, particularly theories of liberation theology, in Caribbean socioeconomic development. A weighty subject indeed; and while a lesser talent may have been tempted to intimidate readers with bombast and didacticism, the Antiguan-born author captivates his audience with seasoned prose, borrowing liberally from popular Caribbean colloquialisms. He persuasively delivers the central theme of "Emancipation": that religion, among the most powerful tools of subjugation employed by colonial masters, also contains the seeds for social and economic liberation of the oppressed. Already considered essential reading for the Caribbean progressive, "Emancipation" belongs in the global pantheon of theological literature. It is a masterpiece.
