Knowing Christ Crucified

The Witness of African American Religious Experience

by M. Shawn Copeland

“Francis of Assisi is reported to have said that the cross is a book. When we open that book in love and in intelligence, we encounter traces of the crucified Jewish Jesus in human social suffering in our world.”

Knowing Christ Crucified is a powerful reading of the Cross of Jesus, both as it is written in scripture and in the experi­ence of the poor and oppressed—particularly in the history of black people in America, from the time of slavery up to the present.
