When you "fit the description" -- The racialized society I've seen -- Leaving behind the whitened Jesus -- Don't go with your gut -- Whiteness matters -- Black lives matter -- The lure of status and respect -- Renouncing every hierarchy -- Where do we go from here?
Summary: What if racial reconciliation doesn't look like what you expected? The high-profile killings of young black men and women by white police officers, and the protests and violence that ensued, have convinced many white Christians to reexamine their intuitions when it comes to race and justice. In this provocative book, theologian and blogger Drew G.I. Hart places police brutality, mass incarceration, antiblack stereotypes, poverty, and everyday acts of racism within the larger framework of white supremacy. Leading readers toward Jesus, Hart offers concrete practices for churches that seek solidarity with the oppressed and are committed to racial justice. What if all Christians listened to the stories of those on the racialized margins? How might the church be changed by the trouble we ve seen?
