In this provocative book Jennifer Harvey argues for a radical shift in how justice-committed white Christians think about race. She calls for moving away from the reconciliation paradigm that currently dominates interracial relations and embracing instead a reparations paradigm. Harvey presents an insightful historical analysis of the painful fissures that emerged among activist Christians toward the end of the Civil Rights movement, and she shows the necessity of bringing "white" racial identity into clear view in order to counter today's oppressive social structures. A deeply constructive, hopeful work, Dear White Christians will help readers envision new racial possibilities, including concrete examples of contemporary reparations initiatives. This book is for any who care about the gospel call to justice but feel stuck trying to get there, given the ongoing prevalence of deep racial divisions in the church and society at large.

Disrupting White Supremacy From Within

The contributors to Disrupting White Supremacy from Within, an all-white group of theologians, ethicists, teachers, ministers, and activists, propose that a fundamental part of the answer to these two questions lies in white peoples' unwillingness to admit, understand, and confront the power of white supremacy in their own lives. Through careful, thoughtful examination of the nature and workings of race, racism, and white supremacy, the contributors have provided a resource that will help white people do their own work of confronting and understanding the impact of white supremacy in the malformation of their own souls, acknowledging its devastating effects on people of color, and taking their own steps toward its abolishment.

With a foreword by Tim Wise, Raising White Kids is for families, churches, educators, and communities who want to equip their children to be active and able participants in a society that is becoming one of the most racially diverse in the world while remaining full of racial tensions. For white people who are committed to equity and justice, living in a nation that remains racially unjust and deeply segregated creates unique conundrums. These conundrums begin early in life and impact the racial development of white children in powerful ways. What can we do within our homes, communities and schools? Should we teach our children to be “colorblind”? Or, should we teach them to notice race? What roles do we want to equip them to play in addressing racism when they encounter it? What strategies will help our children learn to function well in a diverse nation? Talking about race means naming the reality of white privilege and hierarchy. How do we talk about race honestly, then, without making our children feel bad about being white? Most importantly, how do we do any of this in age-appropriate ways? While a great deal of public discussion exists in regard to the impact of race and racism on children of color, meaningful dialogue about and resources for understanding the impact of race on white children are woefully absent. Raising White Kids steps into that void.

HOW OUR DOMINANT CHRISTIAN WORLDVIEW SHAPES EVERYTHING FROM PERSONAL BEHAVIOR TO PUBLIC POLICY (AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT) Living in the Shadow of the Cross "is a powerful, compassionate, yet challenging piece of work. This is a must read for anyone who is committed to social justice and ameliorating oppression."---Rev. Dr. Jamie Washington, Assistant Pastor, Unity Fellowship Church of Baltimore, Founding Faculty, Social Justice Training Institute "Paul Kivel's deep, detailed analyses of Christian assumptions and behavior are both appalling and empowering... [He] shows that those of us who were raised in Christian traditions can lessen institutional Christian oppressiveness without disowning the soul itself." ---Peggy McIntosh, Associate Director, Wellesley Centers for Women and Founding Director, National SEED Project on Inclusive Curriculum ... In most people's vocabularies, the word Christian is synonymous with good. However the actual story is much more complex. Over the last two millennia, ruling elites have used Christian institutions and values to control those less privileged throughout the world. The doctrine of Christianity has been interpreted to justify the killing of millions, and its leaders have used their faith to sanction participation in colonialism, slavery, and genocide. By pulling back the curtain of dominant Western Christianity's benign reputation to examine its contribution to our social problems, author Paul Kivel reveals the ongoing, everyday impact of Christian power and privilege on our beliefs, behaviors, and public policy. At the same time, Living in the Shadow of the Cross acknowledges the long and honorable tradition of Christians who work for social justice, and emphasizes the potential for people to come together to resist domination and build and sustain communities of justice and peace. ... "Paul Kivel has done it again, awakened us to a system of dominance that has been invisible for centuries...The success of this book will not be measured by one's agreement or disagreement but rather the degree to which it helps change the discourse about Christian power and dominance"--- Hugh Vasquez, social justice educator and Senior Associate at the National Equity Project ... Paul Kivel is the award-winning author of Uprooting Racism and the director of the Christian Hegemony Project. He is a social justice activist and educator who has focused on the issues of violence prevention, oppression, and social justice for over 45 years.

Prophetic Rage

In this book Johnny Bernard Hill argues that prophetic rage, or righteous anger, is a necessary response to our present culture of imperialism and nihilism. The most powerful way to resist meaninglessness, he says, is refusing to accept the realities of structural injustice, such as poverty, escalating militarism, genocide, and housing discrimination. Hill’s Prophetic Rage is interdisciplinary, integrating art, music, and literature with theology. It is constructive, passionate, and provocative. Hill weaves through a myriad of creative and prophetic voices of protest -- from Jesus to W. E. B. DuBois, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and President Barack Obama -- as well as multiple approaches, including liberation theology and black religion, to reflect theologically on the nature of liberation, justice, and hope on contemporary culture.

Teaching the Bible Coming to terms with the interpretive revolution- Although the field of biblical studies is bursting with new methods and fresh interpretations, there has been surprisingly little discussion of what these changes mean for the actual task of teaching the Bible. Happily, this volume takes significant first steps in addressing the shifts in classroom pedagogy that the new day in biblical studies urgently demands. Norman K. Gottwald Author of The Hebrew Bible: A Brief Socio-Literary Introduction An absolutely indispensable compendium of resources for charting the changes in the discipline of biblical studies, for exposing the operations of power in past and present interpretations and uses of the Bible, and for discovering a variety of postmodernist and postcolonial pedagogies in the reading and teaching of the Bible in a radically pluralistic age. Abraham Smith Perkins School of Theology, S.M.U. A superb collection of essays on a topic centrally important to theological education and biblical studies. It is an invaluable contribution to the new emancipatory paradigm emerging in biblical studies. Highly accessible, a must reading for anyone in the field. Elisabeth Schssler Fiorenza, Krister Stendahl Professor of Divinity Harvard University Divinity School Teaching the Bible engages the problem and opportunity of theological education in the twenty-first century head on. In a tightly crafted series of provocative essays, the work clearly defines the postmodern, postcolonial, culturally enriched challenges facing the academy today. For any student or scholar who wants to engage the postmodern challenge as an innovative opportunity rather than a debilitating crisis, Teaching the Bible is required reading. Brian K.
