Martin Luther King's observation that 11 a.m. on Sunday is the most segregated hour of the week remains all too true.
Christians addressing racism in American society must begin with a frank assessment of how race figures in the churches themselves, leading activist Joseph Barndt argues. This practical and important volume extends the insights of Barndt's earlier, more general work to address the race situation in the churches and to equip people there to be agents for change in and beyond their church communities.
A hallmark of Barndt's analysis is his keen grasp of the deep yet checkered legacy that American church and church bodies inherit on this question. Yet Barndt also lifts up the ways in which their prophetic work has proved a catalyst for progress in American race relations, and he clearly shows why and how churches can inculcate an antiracist commitment into their collective lives.
Joseph Barndt is a Lutheran pastor, community organizer, teacher, and writer in the field of race and racism. He has been an anti-racism organizer for over four decades. Barndt has written several articles and books on racism and race relations, including his two most recent books, Understanding and Dismantling Racism: The Twenty-First Century Challenge to White America and Becoming an Anti-Racist Church: Journeying toward Wholeness, both from Fortress Press.
