Overview

Africentrism has captured the imagination of many in the black community who are intent on discovering their cultural heritage on the African continent. Many in the African American church have been prompted to consider how Africentric ideas relate to their Christian faith.


Roberts, one of the architects and leading scholars of black theology, provides a theological assessment of Africentrism and its relationship with Christianity. Roberts explores the origins, history, and principles of Africentrism, and reveals how its influences have affected how people practice their Christian faith. His observations will move churches, as well as individual Christians, to make informed decisions regarding how to incorporate Africentric thinking into their lives and ministries.
