Faith, hope, and love embody the black theology of liberation, a movement created by a group of African-American pastors in the last 1960s who felt that Christ's gospel held a special message of liberation for African-Americans, and for all oppressed people. Beginning with an intimate introduction, Hopkins writes of his mother's death, when he was nine, and reveals that his father's love for the poor influenced him to become a Minister and to pursue a life of service which required "a compassionate intellect and an intellectual compassion". Hopkins asserts that in this post-Civil Rights, post-affirmative action era, that all people, regardless of race, must join together in forging a new common wealth. Offering a detailed perspective on a new racial, gender, and economic democracy in the United States, Hopkins illustrates that black theology can be the key to personal and global liberation.

Industry Reviews

"... Hopkins has never disappointed the intelligent and compassionate reader...with this volume...he adds another..." - Library Journal

"An accessible introduction to black theology of liberation for non-specialists, this is at the same time a fine introduction to liberation theology in general. On both counts, it should interest plenty of readers outside as well as in the African American community." - Booklist
