Discussions in Black Theology in Britain
The following discussions are based around a chapter of Black Theology in Britain: A ReaderThis chapter, entitled ‘Future Trajectories’, includes Jagessar and Reddie identifying ten issues/challenges/opportunities with which they felt Black Theology in Britain should engage into the future.
They are as follows:

- Praxis (practice as opposed to theory)
- Diversity of Black religiosity and spirituality
- Class analysis
- Being ‘prophetic…and protesting’
