Forever in Thy Path: The God of Black Liberation
By: Harry H. Singleton
Forever in Thy Path makes the case that the God of biblical revelation is today’s God of black liberation and that black liberation will realize itself given that the eternal power of God’s liberating presence will ultimately defeat the historical power of white supremacy.
In this book the author employs “path” as a metaphor to denote the trek of black people on its liberating journey from the holds of ships to today. It affirms black strivings for freedom as consistent with divine will despite those strivings’ branding as iconoclastic and ungodly by the white Christian establishment.
