White as Sin: A New Paradigm for Racial Healing (Paperback)
Changing the Conversation about Race in America
If we are ever to find a cure for America's racial dysfunction, it's not enough to know what has happened; we must also understand why. Why have people of European descent oppressed their racial "other," and why have we never been able to move beyond the resulting racial hierarchy? In White as Sin public theologian Scott Garber asks and answers the why question, offering prophetic insight and practical solutions.
White as Sin identifies a moral flaw embedded in the very soul of white identity, showing how that defect enables an entire litany of racial ills. Moreover, this book explains the mindset that sustains a sinful solidarity between yesterday and today. It takes us on an epic journey into the origins of whiteness. It explores the twisted recesses of racial injustice. It lays bare our own hearts and our own hypocrisies.
Ultimately, however, White as Sin: A New Paradigm for Racial Healing is just that--a formula for hope and healing. The author outlines a transformational process designed to change not just what we do but who we are, one that seeks to right the wrongs of the past and lay the foundation for a beloved community.
