"Robert Hood's volume should be read precisely because it lies outside the range of Euro-American cognizance. It unbinds God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit from Greco-Roman intellectual hegemony, thereby making the case for a new transcultural theology, deeply penetrated by the profoundly human and pragmatic spirituality of Africa and the Caribbean."
Gayraud S. Wilmore
"This elegant theological exposé of the Eurocentric colonization of and by white theology becomes a richly textured prolegomenon for a mult-cultural reconstruction of Christianity, including an inspiring critique of the doctrine of the Spirit from the vantage point of the spirits."
"Must God Remain Greek? brings together, in a fascinating and readable way, the cultural and religious thought and activities of African peoples, Caribbeans, and Afro-Americans to bear upon Christian theology. As a scholar Dr. Hood is at home in the three regions, as well as in the Western Christian tradition. He raises fundamental questions for theology, which have tremendous consequences in the present day of Christian expansion and ecumenical movement.... It is refreshing to see an old problem recast in cultural areas where Christianity is throbbing and thriving."
