Drawing from real-life pastoral examples, socio-political analysis, and the theme of Eucharist as a means to human healing and restoration, A Redemption Song outlines and explores what a black British pastoral theology might look like.
A landmark text, it offers critical reflection and practical tools for those working and ministering within multicultural communities, especially those with large African-Caribbean populations.
'At long last, after over a decade of prompting, cajoling, and exhorting my friend to write down his wisdom and knowledge, we now finally have this book. I believe that this book will become an essential text for theological educators and pastoral practitioners across the UK. This is a book for which many of us have been waiting. I am delighted. I know that many people will soon agree with me!' -- Anthony G. Reddie, Regent's Park College, Oxford
'A brilliant, forthright historically and psychosocially penetrating account of Black people's experience in Britain, A Redemption Song is not just a must read but truly a "must study" for all who recognize the need for the care of all persons in whatever national context they find themselves' -- Emmanuel Lartey, Candler School of Theology
‘This penetrating work challenges the lack of psychological attention to black experiences within not only theological, but also psychotherapeutic spaces. This is the kind of book that can spark a trajectory for further research and reflection, making conscious and therefore addressing the often-veiled processes that hinder Black flourishing.’ -- Carlton Turner, The Queen’s Foundation, UK
