In his reflections on God, Jesus, suffering, and liberation, James H. Cone relates the gospel message to the experience of the black community. But a wider theme of the book is the role that social and historical context plays in framing the questions we address to God as well as the mode of the answers provided.

With the publication of his two early works, Black Theology & Black Power (1969) and A Black Theology of Liberation (1970), James Cone emerged as one of the most creative and provocative theological voices in North America. These books, which offered a searing indictment of white theology and society, introduced a radical reappraisal of the Christian message for our time. Combining the visions of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr., Cone radically reappraised Christianity from the perspective of the oppressed black community in North America. Forty years later, his work retains its original power, enhanced now by reflections on the evolution of his own thinking and of black theology and on the needs of the present moment.

Warum Gott? Ist es heute noch vernünftig zu glauben? Ist der Glaube nicht irrelevant, ohne Antworten auf die drängenden Fragen der Zeit? Hat die Wissenschaft nicht den Glauben an Gott längst widerlegt? Mächtige Fragen an den Allmächtigen! Tim Keller findet Antworten, die nicht nur den Zweifler nachdenklich werden lassen. Und er nennt gute Gründe für den Glauben.
