"Terror and Triumph is an extraordinarily interesting account of the ways in which slavery operated, mainly in the southern states, together with a very thought-provoking new analysis of the nature and role of black religion within and in response to slavery."
—John Hick, Danforth Professor of the Philosophy of Religion (emeritus),
Claremont Graduate University, California, and author of A Christian Theology of Religions: The Rainbow of Faith and Evil and the God of Love
"The defining innovation in Anthony Pinn's Terror and Triumph is the perceptive way in which he reads enslaved Black bodies as religious texts. One can hardly overstate the value of Pinn's attention to cultural details and his excellent interpretation of interdisciplinary sources. Terror
and Triumph is essential reading for all who want to understand
better the terror of human cruelty and the triumph of embodied resiliency."
