Heart and Head, by Dwight N. Hopkins

Black theology has matured and assumed greater clarity and analytical depth since its origins in the 1960s. Dwight N. Hopkins, associate professor of theology at the University of Chicago Divinity School, has contributed enormously to this development. With this book, Hopkins establishes himself as a leading intellectual and spiritual force among the second generation of African-American theologians.
