From the UK church's complicity in the transatlantic slave trade to the whitewashing of Christianity throughout history, the church has a lot to answer for when it comes to race relations. Christianity has been dubbed the white man's religion, and yet the Bible speaks of an impartial God and contains a diverse body of believers. It's time for the church to start talking about race.
In this book, Ben Lindsay offers eye-opening insights into the black religious experience, challenging the perceived 'status quo' in white majority churches. Filled with personal experience and insightful questions, this book offers a comprehensive analysis of race relations within the UK church and how we can work towards creating a truly inclusive church community.
