T&T Clark Companion to African American Theology explores the central theme of Christian faith from various disciplinary approaches and from different contexts of black experience in the United States. The central unifying theme of this volume is freedom, an important concept both in American culture and Christianity. African American theology represents a Christian understanding of God's freedom and the good news of God's call for all humankind to enter life- true human identity and moral responsibility- in genuine and just community that enables human flourishing. In the American context, African American theology shows that racism and other intersecting forms of oppression complicate the human predicament and require for their eradication nothing less than an enlargement of salvation to include the liberation of persons who lack full participation in society and enjoyment of the good (and goods) made possible by that society.

The essays in this volume are descriptive, normative and constructive, employing the tools of biblical criticism, history, cultural and social analysis, religious studies, philosophy, and systematic theology in order to explore and assess the nature and impact of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, immigration, and cultural and moral pluralism in America as well as the intersections between African American and African diasporan religious thought and life.
