About-

In Afrian American Christian Ethics, Samuel K. Roberts builds an ethic upon a Trinitarian foundation and explores scripture, tradition, human experience, and reason as sources for such an ethic. Using this framework he examines critical issues, including human sexuality and family life, medicine and bio-ethics, and the pursuit of justice.

Endorsements & Reviews-

Employing the best scholarly tools, Professor Roberts has done careful surgery on the anatomy of American racist culture. … His Bork will definitely be used to jumpstart discussions about what constitute African American Christian ethics. …It will cause scholars and practitioners of religion to rethink the entire American experience.
Riggins R. Earl. Jr. Interdenominational Theological Center

Roberts provides not only his expected social wisdom but also a comprehensive Trinitarian theology in African American Christian Ethics. This mature work represents the best of the liberal African American tradition.
Ronald H. Stone. Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

Informed as to specifics, eloquent in style, dialogically interactive in method, and perceptive in judgments, this book will do much to stimulate moral reflection in black and other communities for many years to come.
