Noel Leo Erskine is Professor of Theology and Ethics at Candler School of Theology and the Laney Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Emory University. He has been a visiting Professor in ten schools in six countries. His books include King Among the Thologians (1995), and From Garvey to Marley (2007).
A brilliantly provocative and unprecedented book, told with both intimately personal prose and comprehensive and convincing data, with insights that will radically change the way we have conceptualized Black Atlantic religious traditions. This is the book that we have been waiting for. It is truly a tour de force, a must read for all! * Kamari M. Clarke, Professor of Anthropology and International and Area Studies, Yale University * This book is one of those rare scholarly corrections that offers profound wisdom for academic and popular audiences. Noel Erskine mounts compelling evidence that the black religious experience began in the Caribbean and not in the United States. How refreshing that he does so with fluid storytelling and a writing style that urges the reader to pursue each page with expectations of new knowledge. * Dwight N. Hopkins, co-editor of The Cambridge Companion to Black Theology * ... it is an indispensable addition to the acreage of texts detailing Black Church history ... Noel Leo Erskine has produced a major text of great import, which will continue to stir debate for many years to come. * Anthony G. Reddie, Black Theology: An International Journal *
