The journal Black Theology has recently reviewed Celucien L. Joseph’s Theologizing in Black: On Africana Theological Ethics and Anthropology. The book, published in April 2020 under our Pickwick imprint, is a creative and rigorous comparative study on black theological musings and liberative intellectual contemplations engaging the theological ethics and anthropology of both continental African theologians (Tanzania, Kenya, Democratic Republic of the Congo) and black theologians in the African Diaspora (Haiti, Trinidad, Jamaica, Antigua and Barbuda, United States). “Written in an American context by an Associate Professor of English, positioned in an undergraduate college, Theologizing in Black unites the worlds of Black liberation theologies across the Black Diaspora with Africana Studies in the United States,” writes reviewer, Ronald B. Neal.

Praise for the book
“Joseph’s work is theoretically sophisticated and pedagogically innovative. Joseph interacts with major thinkers in the field of black and African religions, but he also introduces other voices who should have been part of the conversations long ago. His analysis of the work of Jean Price Mars, a towering nineteenth-century Haitian intellectual, and his nuanced treatment of black and African religious expressions make his contribution a refreshing scholarly addition. For its clear exposition and thought-provoking ideas, I wholeheartedly recommend this book.”
