Ending Racism in Church

by Susan E. Davies
     
 
It has often been said that Sunday is the most segregated day of the week. Within the walls of a space that is considered sacred often lie pent-up hostilities that ensnare and subvert the best of intentions. How often it is forgotten that we are all people of color-and that no single race is the norm.

Boldly speaking to church members everywhere, this collection

Overview

It has often been said that Sunday is the most segregated day of the week. Within the walls of a space that is considered sacred often lie pent-up hostilities that ensnare and subvert the best of intentions. How often it is forgotten that we are all people of color-and that no single race is the norm.

Boldly speaking to church members everywhere, this collection raises awareness of how and how often racism influences behavior and spawns hatred. It includes a guide for groups to discuss the various issues.

Each of the four sections begins with a case study profiling a church or community agency that is working to end racism, followed by chapters from a diverse group of scholars and practitioners who describe the subtle ways in which racism undermines the gospel's thrust. "Ending Racism in the Church" is an important work for church members of all backgrounds.
