Description


This volume is a compilation of the papers, lectures, criticisms, and speeches presented at the Second Annual Convocation of Thurman Scholars. The authors are critics who have written and published essays and books on Thurman in the past decade since his death in 1981. Thurman was one of the foremost religionists - theologian, poet, philosopher, mystic, and scholar - of the twentieth century, and the leading African-American religious practitioner and writer. Attracting numerous followers and admirers from all races, cultures, religions, and ethnic groups, he exerted profound influence on the religious thinkers and specialists of his time. The critical works in this volume attempt to assess the value of Thurman's central focus in his life and works: the human search for God.
