Methodologies of Black Theology. Cleveland, OH: Pligrim Press, 2003. By Frederick L. Ware
Ware’s book surveys the contemporary black theological movement, identifying major developments in the field, principal schools of thought, and major authors. The schools of thought described in the book are the Black Hermeneutical, Black Philosophical, and Human Sciences schools. The chapter on the Black Philosophical School examines the impact of the works of William R. Jones, Cornel West, Alice Walker, Anthony Pinn, and Henry Young on the development of black theology.
Ware is an assistant professor of theology at Howard University School of Divinity, in Washington, DC. He earned a Ph.D. in religion from Vanderbilt University and B.A. and M.A. in philosophy from the University of Memphis.
