“This is an intriguing book from beginning to end. I learned a great deal from it both in terms of Biblical exegesis of the relevant texts, their historical usage for racist purposes, and their various contemporary uses by African Americans in their pursuit for enhanced dignity and cultural valorization. It can be an apt grounding for Biblical humanism on the one hand and for African American humanism on the other hand as some of the articles indicate. Yet, it can be used as a theological corrective for human aspirations towards domination, tyranny, and oppression as others demonstrate in their essays. The text results in a rich historical repository of racist interpretations that have demeaned the humanity of African peoples for many centuries. It is an important collective of essays on a subject of great interest to African peoples both within and without the theological and biblical academy.”—Peter J. Paris, Elmer G. Homrighausen Professor Emeritus, Christian Social Ethics, Princeton Theology Seminary
