I am excited to share this special conversation with Frederick L. Ware with you. Dr. Ware is author of African American Theology, which is a seriously excellent introduction and ready for your reading pleasure. He is the Associate Professor of Theology at Howard University Divinity School in Washington, DC and the author of Methodologies of Black Theology.
In this episode we discuss a host of different topics and the unique methodology Dr. Ware is outlining for African American Theology including…
- how the concept of “freedom” serves as an overarching theme for theology
- a model of God in which power is balanced with love and God is the “way-maker”
- A story about his Professor Sallie McFague whom you can listen to here.
- Major shout out to Eboni Marshall Turman and her Christological text Toward a Womanist Ethic of Incarnation: Black Bodies, the Black Church, and the Council of Chalcedon
- the good life and the meaning of evil and suffering
- the challenge of remythologizing the demythologized text
- and plenty of other goodies
Join us this summer in Denver and Oklahoma City for Theology Beer Camp with Peter Rollins.
