Ep. 039 | A Primer on Black Liberation Theology & BLM w/ Virgil Walker— TAU Roundtable

by | Jun 20, 2020 | Theology, Things Above Us Roundtable


George Alvarado, Chuck Ivey, and Michael Coughlin are joined by Virgil Walker from the Just Thinking podcast to discuss Black Liberation Theology and its connection to the Black Lives Matter organization.

So we decided to create this primer to help anyone who seeks to understand the theological underpinnings of this movement.

On this episode, we discuss: What is the history of Black Liberation Theology? Who was James Cone? What was his view of the atonement? Was he a heretic? What is the connection of Black Liberation Theology to the Black Lives Matter movement? How should we respond as Christians? And much more…
