Description 1 online resource
Summary Building on the foundation laid by 'Divided by Faith: Evangelical Religion and the Problem of Race in America' (Oxford, 2000), 'Christians and the Color Line' offers an updated analysis of the complex entanglement of race and religion in American society. Taking into account cultural context and important changes over time, this volume questions the existence of a post-racial reality for religious congregations and spiritual interests. Although the pervasive and overt discrimination and segregation of yesterday's Jim Crow era has passed, its residual presence lives on in subtler inflections of racial preferences and privileges that continue to divide American Christians along racial lines
