Despite professed ideals and incremental progress, racism persists as a powerful, deeply entrenched social reality. Lay a theological foundation for confronting the chief forms of racism from a Christian perspective. Examine the status of “races,” trace the history of racism in modern societies, and analyze case studies in light of a biblical vision of humanity, righteousness, justice, and love. Learn to come alongside, honor, and learn from minoritized others, as well as address concrete manifestations of racism. If you are seeking to be a well-informed, self-aware, anti-racist follower of Jesus, this class is for you.
