Publisher's Description

A classic work on religion and the racial problems of modern america -now brought up to date.
Since the early days of the Republic, Americans' exuberant, unchastened idealism, their commitment to the notion of a perfect society in the New World, has clashed with the reality of ugly American society, and religious groups have all too often accommodated themselves to these injustices.
In "Race, Religion, and the Continuing American Dilemma," C. Eric Lincoln reevaluates what Gunnar Myrdal called "the American dilemma" and studies particularly the influence of the black church. This revised edition takes into account the weakening of welfare and affirmative action, and argues that the black church must serve today as a vital moral authority to lead us in to the twenty-first century..

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

"Well researched and provocative."--The Sun (Baltimore)

"Even those of us who fancy we know something of the history of race relations in America have much to learn from Eric Lincoln . . . Race, Religion, and the Continuing American Dilemma is not only informative; it is a powerful antidote to the complacency arising from the significant progress of the last 30 years . . .It's easy to forget, or not to notice, how the nation's unfinished work looks from the black perspective. Lincoln, in offering that perspective, is a passionate, colorful, contentious writer . . . [who] achieves a considerable power and eloquence."--The Washington Post
