Book Review - James Baldwin and the Heavenly City, by Christopher Z. Hobson


Jan 30, 2019

Chris contends that, of these two contrasting world-views [blues-based skepticism, Gospel-based hope - Ed.], Baldwin wants us to choose the second and to actively work for it. Despite his impressive efforts, Chris has not managed to completely convince me of his position. Based on the material that he presents, I can make a case that what Baldwin might be saying is that life - Black life, gay life, the life of all of us - is actually the nteraction, the oscillation, between the two points of view.
