This Side of Heaven

Race, Ethnicity, and Christian Faith

Edited by Robert J. Priest and Alvaro L. Nieves

This collection of all-new essays is meant to enable those who are engaged in diversity initiatives to understand the ways in which Christian communities, practices, and discourses have been impacted by racial ideologies. It also suggests how Christian resources and motivations can provide significant correctives to ethnic and racial prejudices, animosities, boundaries, and hierarchies of wealth and power. Written by an interethnic and interdisciplinary team of scholars representing diverse disciplines, and the product of a long-term study funded by the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion, this volume will meet a pressing need and set a new standard for the discussion of race and ethnicity in the Christian context.
