Item Description...
Can the gospel message of the Atonement have a liberative message for black Christians? Is there, indeed, power in the blood of Jesus? This study of the meaning of the cross in the African American religious experience is both comprehensive and powerful: comprehensive because it explores the meaning of the cross - symbol of suffering and sacrifice - from the early beginnings of Christianity through modern times, and powerful because it is written by a black woman who has experienced abuse and the oppression of field-work.

Insightful theology in light of African American experience on one of theology's enduring questions  Sep 25, 2008
JoAnne Terrell's "Power in the Blood?" is a richly informed and personally honest theological interrogation of the meaning of the cross in African American experience. Both serious and sensitive to the enduring effects of racism and sexism in American history, Christianity, and the church, Terrell's book faithfully considers classical Atonement theory in light of African American religious sources and personal narrative, ultimately arguing for a critical, yet redemptive appropriation of Jesus Christ on the cross in light of suffering.

The author is both an African American woman minister and scholar. Thus, she positions herself with the strong Womanist critique of atonement theory (particularly Delores William's critique of Christ as surrogate), but critically considers how Christ's blood spilt on the cross retains a sacramental understanding of redemptive suffering amidst the God's call for justice on the side of persons under the weight of oppression. Terrell stands on both the classical tradition (particularly Abelard) and, as a Womanist, on her own experience. From this evidence, the author critically appropriates how the suffering of Christ - the power of his blood - can and does historically provide a sense of both agency and strength.

The author's perspective is creatively informed and complex, substantiated with theological acumen across classical theology, African American religion, as well as her own personal experience and reflection.

"Power in the Blood?" is a great book for seminarians, pastors, and theologians interested in Atonement theory, Christology, Womanism, and African American experience.
This book is a food for thought when we are in pain  Apr 24, 2001
This is a must read for anybody under going any kind of pain and suffering. It is very important to believe in something strongly either God or medical treatment and firmly stick to it. It is amazing how Africian Americans strongly beleived in God , despite the dreadfully life in American. It thought me that God in its infinite goodness is inexhaustaible when it comes to his grace for his children. By reading this book you will learn the other aspites of life that is so enriching despite lack of material wealth but just with faith in Christ. There are many lessions to learn for everybody from this book either from the power of Jesus or from practical faith on something.
