This Side of Heaven by Robert J. Priest
Book DescriptionIn recent years Christian scholars have become increasingly aware of their responsibility to recognise and repsond to the challenges posed by ethnic and racial diversity. Similarly, historically white Christian colleges, universities, seminaries and congregations are struggling to transform themselves into communities that are welcoming to minorities and sensitive to their needs. This collection of all-new essays is meant to enable those who are engaged in these initiatives to understand the historical linkage of race , ethnicity and Christianity and to explore the ways in which constructive change can be achieved. Written by an interracial and interethnic team of scholars representing diverse disciplines, this book will meet a pressing need and set a new standard for the discussion of race and ethnicity in the Christian context.
