Discussions in Black Theology
This section grows out of one aspect of my work at the Queen’s Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Education. Here, using articles published in Black Theology: An International Journal, I attempt to facilitate engagement with and conversations around some of the ideas that have been and are being developed within Black Theology.
Each session consists of a summary of the published article and a set of questions I have designed to encourage conversation around the ideas contained in the article. While the summary contains the main points of the author’s argument, I would encourage you to go on to read the original articles as published.
As I operate within the British context, some questions refer to this specifically. Please adapt them to your own context if necessary.
The original articles can be found in Black Theology: An International Journal. Details of the journal can be found here:
