Complete Dr. Obery Hendricks' Interview On W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News & Radio...

Tha Artivist Writes:
Last week's show on W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News & Radio, "Black Liberation Theology 101", had such tremendous participation that my complete interview with Dr. Hendricks wasn't able to run because we ran out of time...By popular demand I decided to make the complete interview available in its entirety...

Listen To The Complete Interview With Leading Innovative Biblical Scholar & The Author Of The Politics Of Jesus, Dr. Obery Hendricks:

Dr. Obery M. Hendricks, Jr. is among the most radical and innovative biblical scholars in America. The Dictionary of Biblical Interpretation calls his work "the boldest post-colonial writing ever seen in Western biblical studies." His study, "The Problem with Gospel Music Today," has been anthologized as one of "the greatest writings on the music of the African American church in the last century."

"[E]ssential reading for Americans” is what Jon Meacham, the managing editor of Newsweek, wrote in The Washington Post about Hendricks’ latest book, The Politics of Jesus. Social critic Michael Eric Dyson calls it "an instant classic" that "immediately thrusts Hendricks into the front ranks of American religious thinkers." His novel, Living Water, was chosen as Best Christian Fiction of 2003 by Black Issues Book Review.

A widely sought speaker, lecturer, and media commentator, Hendricks is a featured writer for and He is a member of the Faith Advisory Council for the Democratic National Committee and an Ordained Elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church.

A former Wall Street investment executive and past president of Payne Theological Seminary, the oldest African American theological seminary in the United States, Hendricks is currently Professor of Biblical Interpretation at New York Theological Seminary. He holds the Master of Divinity with academic honors from Princeton Theological Seminary and both the M.A. and Ph.D. in Religions of Late Antiquity from Princeton University. He is a principal commentator in The Oxford Annotated Bible, one of the most widely used academic study Bibles in the English-speaking world, and a contributing editor to The Encyclopedia of Politics and Religion.
Hendricks' trailblazing contributions to American religious discourse are summarized by Cornel West: "Obery Hendricks is not just on the cutting edge, he is the knife!"
