"African American Theology is a remarkable achievement. While a very helpful introduction to the field for students who need an initial orientation, it also succeeds in bridging evangelical-ecumenical impasses and in pushing the discussion forward in interdisciplinary, intercultural, and transcontinental directions. Ware is uniquely suited to thereby register the crucial contributions of this multifaceted African American theological tradition to the broader conversation."
—Amos Yong, Professor of Theology and Mission, Fuller Theological Seminary, and coeditor of Afro-Pentecostalism: Black Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity in History & Culture

"Frederick Ware's book provides an important and compelling addition to the field. African American Theology: An Introduction will become a standard, accessible reference point for those wishing a comprehensive overview of the belief systems of African Americans. The strength of this text lies in the individual vision Ware brings to the subject as one of its most experienced scholars. While there are larger, more comprehensive anthologies dedicated to the subject, this text provides a compelling combination of broad overview alongside the cumulative wisdom and experience of an individual author. Frederick Ware is to be commended for giving us an essential text that will be of great service to all educators committed to communicating the critical insights of African American theology."
—Anthony G. Reddie, Editor of Black Theology: An International Journal and author of the SCM Core Text: Black Theology
