Paperback
- A wide-ranging treatise on the nature of race and power in Europe and America.Kenneth Leech, one of the more beloved and respected Christian social thinkers of the late 20th century, has written a wide-ranging treatise on the nature of race and power in Europe and America. This book comes to us in a time of growing social and economic division, where the competing forces of immigration and globalization have combined to force humanity apart. Race is a resource to transform those divisions.In his inimitable style, Leech bridges history, politics, and theology to paint a full picture of the problem of race, and to point a way forward for the church. He begins his work with the problem of race itself. After defining the term, he considers the history of racist thinking and action, and racial policies, in Britain and America. Date by date he highlights major racial events and conflicts, naming the perpetrators and the victims. Next he turns his attention to the ways in which communities and nations failed to suppress 'the monster' of race, and sets out a path to change. He argues that the church is well suited for the job, but if it is to do it well, it must critically focus its actions, and look beyond its ecclesial borders to engage with the world.For all Christians concerned with race, for historians and activists, Kenneth Leech is a seminal writer. And Race is a vital resource.
