More About This Title Slavery’s Long Shadow
Despite claims that Jesus Christ transcends all racial barriers, the most segregated hour in America still comes every Sunday morning, when Christians gather for worship.
In Slavery’s Long Shadow fourteen scholars examine how the sobering historical realities of race relations and Christianity have created both unity and division within American churches from the 1790s into the twenty-first century. The book’s three sections offer readers three different entry points into the conversation: major historical periods, case studies, and ways forward. Historians and any Christians interested in racial reconciliation will find that this book helpfully illuminates our Christian and national past and points us toward a more unified future.
