True to Our Native Land: An African American New Testament commentary
Brian K. Blount, general editor

Augsburg Fortress, £29 (978-0-8006-3421-6)
Church Times Bookshop £26.10)

This book is, say the publishers, “pathbreaking” biblical interpretation grounded in African American experience and concern, emphasising themes such as slavery, class, ethnicity, preaching, and the Bible. Palm Sunday (above) by Jacob Lawrence is its jacket illustration.
