Dr. James H. Cone
(Labor) August 5, 1936 – (Reward) April 28, 2018

“Christian theology is language about the liberating character of God’s presence in Jesus Christ as [God] calls [God’s] people into being for freedom in the world.”

“In doing this work…as preachers, theologians are proclaimers of the Word, the truth of Jesus Christ as the Liberator of the poor and the wretched of the land.”

–James H. Cone, God of the Oppressed (p. 8)
