Emancipation Still Comin'
Explorations in Caribbean Emancipatory Theology
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
Kortright Davis, an Anglican priest, was born in Antigua. He was one of the Archbishop of Canterbury's members on the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission II, and is Professor of Theology at Howard University School of Divinity.
"Deeply concerned with the historical and cultural contexts of theology, Professor Davis has developed a provocative argument that the reconstruction of Caribbean society and its spiritual integrity will be postponed until the emancipatory dimensions of its religious expression are embraced by the region's diverse constituencies. This is an important book."
--Michael R. Winston, President, Alfred Harcourt Foundation
"Professor David's profound scholarship in church history and liturgy provides a sure foundation for his perceptive and well-researched assessment of the impact of the church on Caribbean society. Emancipation Still Comin' not only recounts the role of the church, it examines with sensitivity and candor the varied strands that are woven into the fabric of Caribbean life. The author's lucid and lively style make his monograph all the more readable, and further enhances its value as source-material for the study of the Caribbean."
--Sir William Douglas, Ambassador of Barbados
