William R. Jones, Jr., author of 'Is God a White Racist?', dies


Here is an obituary:

Rest in Peace – Rev. Bill R. Jones, Rev Josh Pawelek, July 20, 2012

Jones died on Friday, July 13, 2012, close to his 79th birthday.

I have posted about him several times. One of my posts is referenced in this obituary:

Ralph Dumain has a helpful review of Is God a White Racist? here

Sorry to hear it. I read that book at least three times because of its arguing points especially those that call into question the validity of Black Liberation theology, which he rightlhy questioned. Cone had held a sacred position among theologians (self-described) without ever being questioned considering the circumstances that remain unchanged.
