Date of Publication:
November 8, 2016
Publisher:
NYU Press
ISBN: 
978-1479810383

“This is the most decisive statement on post-racialism, the American dilemma, and black church positive agency. On each page, Fluker’s writing moans and wails us out of southern African American religiosity, up north into the fragmentation of black urban life, and into an ethical world of hope for an America becoming. A defining direction and persuasive proposal on how to get us to healthy community.” -Dwight N. Hopkins, author of “Being Human: Race, Culture, and Religion”

Date of Publication: June 30, 2010
Publisher: State University of New York Press
ISBN: 143842826X

“This compilation of essays culled together from Neville’s accomplished career offers an avenue for acquainting readers with some of his basic insights and contributions to the fields of philosophy and theology … Frequently, such compilations fail to achieve a complementary whole, but nothing could be further from the case here. Divided into three parts—realism and truth, realism in pragmatism, and realism in religion and metaphysics—each part provides the occasion for the next.” — Religious Studies Review

“An unprecedented account of one of the principal architects of the non-violent civil rights movement, the four-volume series The Papers of Howard Thurman offers the most complete portrayal of the religious leader and activist to date. The well-curated first volume exposes the decades of Thurman’s thinking that preceded his first publication in 1922. The collection reveals Thurman’s intellectual development and his milieu. It’s consequential reading.”—ForeWord Reviews
