    I am working my way through God of the Oppressed. I took it on vacation last week and managed to work through the first three chapters. Last night I took a break and read the additional articles. Taken as a whole, Cone’s book was written in the 70’s, but much of what he discusses is still timely and relevant today. This is terribly heartbreaking.

    Over the summer I hosted a reading group on the book How to Be an Anti-racist. One of the members of the group talked about how she had been in protests and racial justice movements in the 70s and thought progress was being made. Her comments and experiences really helped inform my reading of Cone’s work. I am particularly intrigued by the discussion of religion being informed by culture. I think this is so true. I wonder what others think.
