Description

In a bold, inventive style, Xodus addresses the increasingly perilous situation of black males by sifting critically through the mythic, cultural, and political realities that impinge on African American men, and discerning in them ultimate religious and ethical values that can affirm and inform new black male lifestyles.

Endorsements

"The first constructing theological ethics relative to the survival, wholeness, and emancipation of the black man, Xodus redefines the foundational terms of the debate around the radical reconstruction of the African male self in America. And it reads persuasively—like the piano sounds of a blues-jazz-funk musician."
— Dwight N. Hopkins, University of Chicago Divinity School
