REVIEW God of the Oppressed READ & DOWNLOAD Û God of the Oppressed REVIEW ☆ SJMEDIA.CO × James H. Cone God of the Oppressed remains a landmark in the development of Black Theology the first effort to present a systematic theology drawing fully on the resources of African American religion and culture Responding to the criticism that his previous books drew too heavily on Euro American defin Every white self professed theologian and pastor who continues to preach or speak about anything other than struggle with and the liberation for the oppressed has strayed tremendously from the Gospel and in the words of brother Cone it is blasphemyCone is systematic in his deconstruction of white theology and its relationship with the status uo government law color A revolutionary thinker that still speaks and reaches the racial tensions we are undergoing today Predominantly white churches should consider implementing this work into their communities as an interruption to white spaces and white noise in order to hear the voices they oppress and suppress daily White people must forsake their metaphysical theologies and wrestle with their whiteness and the Gospel before them Cone writes When whites undergo the true experience of conversion where in they die to their whiteness and are reborn anew in order to struggle against white oppression and for the liberation of the oppressed there is a place for them in the black struggle of freedom Here reconciliation becomes God s gift of blackness through the oppressed of the land But it must be made absolutely clear that it is the black community that decides both the authenticity of white conversion and also the place these converts will play in the black struggle of freedom The converts can have nothing to say about the validity of their conversion experience or what is best for the community or their place in it except as permitted by the oppressed of the community itselfAs a white person this book was an event in my whiteness an encounter with a new truth This truth was a liberating event a divine happening Very few books have challenged me in this way I can no longer workout a theology in abstract and theoretical jargon God is grounded in being in the human being that struggles for liberation Will I risk this body this voice this color to speak out against white oppressors Or will I just hit play on Mackle s White Privilege II song and continue to nod my head

Cone Itions of theology James Cone went back to his experience of the black church in Bearden Arkansas the tradition of the Spirituals and black folklore and the black history of struggle and survival to construct a new approach to the gospel In his reflections on God Jesus suffering and libera Sometimes one needs a lingua franca I am pretty much a secular white dude and get a lot of my understanding through symbols To understand other people you have to understand the symbol systems they operate under in order to communicate or possibly lend assistance And anyway I am curious about all sorts of things and the Black Church is a lacuna in my knowledge I wanted to know how theologians thought about this stuff in that tradition This book gave me lots of insights Good stuff
