Overview of Theologies

When people ask me what my favorite book is, I say this one:

Focused Liberation Theologies

Black Liberation Theology: James Cone’s God of the Oppressed (fav book)
J Kameron Carter’s Race: A Theological Account

QueerControversies in Queer Theology by Susannah Cornwall 
Radical Love: Introduction to Queer Theology by Patrick S. Cheng
