Abstract

[Christianity has always proclaimed the image of God present in human beings and the universal saving power of Christ. Yet, as chapter 2 has shown, the long trajectory of injustice against African Americans—slavery, segregation, and racism—has been perpetrated largely by European American Christians. Christian faith often has not functioned to prevent this abomination, but instead has supported it. Why have white Christians not been compelled to fight this evil? Why is doing so still the exception for us, rather than the rule?]
