America's Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to a New America

#ad
Brazos Press #ad - America s original sin Racism White Privilege and the Bridge to a New America. His participation in the civil rights movement brought him back when he discovered a faith that commands racial justice. The old patterns of white privilege are colliding with the changing demographics of a diverse nation. Fifty years ago, wallis was driven away from his faith by a white church that considered dealing with racism to be taboo.

Probing yet positive, this book shows people of faith how they can work together to overcome the embedded racism in America, biblically rooted yet highly practical, galvanizing a movement to cross the bridge to a multiracial church and a new America. Yet as recent tragedies confirm, we continue to suffer from the legacy of racism.

America's Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to a New America #ad - Racism is truly our nation's original sin. It's time we right this unacceptable wrong, " says bestselling author and leading Christian activist Jim Wallis. America's problem with race has deep roots, with the country's foundation tied to the near extermination of one race of people and the enslavement of another.

The church has been slow to respond, and Sunday morning is still the most segregated hour of the week. In america's original sin, wallis offers a prophetic and deeply personal call to action in overcoming the racism so ingrained in American society. He speaks candidly to christians--particularly white Christians--urging them to cross a new bridge toward racial justice and healing.

Whenever divided cultures and gridlocked power structures fail to end systemic sin, faith communities can help lead the way to grassroots change.
