God of the Oppressed

Trying to catch up on some of my reading this semester. Too many other things – and most of my newsy things have gone on my other blog. So here goes a little flurry.

James Cone’s God of the Oppressed was a text for one of my courses. An interesting read and fun to engage with my students on it. One thought from my reading was Cone’s failure to appreciate the radical nature of Christian forgiveness. He wants (understandably) things to be fixed before he forgives. But I’m not so sure that’s a deeply Christian perspective.
