About the Author
Cain Hope Felder (1943-2019) served as professor of New Testament language and literature at Howard University's School of Divinity from 1981 until his retirement in 2016. He was the author or editor of several books, including two other Fortress titles: True to Our Native Land: An African American New Testament Commentary (2007) and Race, Racism, and the Biblical Narratives (2002).
"The book represents a major shift--a paradigm shift--wherein the eurocentrism of the scholarship in the dominant culture has been taken off its scholastic pedestal. This has been replaced by an Afrocentrism which accents the experiences of African Americans and relocates the context in which biblical interpretations are done." --Jacquelyn Grant, Interdenominational Theological Center
"A landmark volume . . . of rigorous scholarship, laying out the issues in African American biblical hermeneutics clearly, cogently, and prophetically." --Gale A. Yee, Episcopal Divinity School
"Stony the Road We Trod works out of the powerful interfacing of the heritage of African American Christianity and the presence of African American scholars in theological academies of the US. I want to read it as both challenge to and expression of theologies of prophetic pragmatism." --Rebecca S. Chopp, Emory University
