fragile structures in which black Christians have had to use to bridge the gap between faith and experience. Green's argument is brave and compelling. One is left to grapple with questions such as: Whose interest are served by Christian morality, when Christianity is examined as a whole in "terms of its history, doctrines, and precepts"? and Is the reality of continued Black oppression and suffering in the presence of "a benevolent God who intervenes in peoples' lives a sign of 'divine racism'"? I look forward to reading this book with others because of the rich dialogue it encourages.
I also find it insulting that she thinks "black people are morally inferior". If that is her opinion about black people and if she thinks that is the way everyone feels then that is really a sad and ridiculous assumption on her part. And what about black people who are Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Aethiest etc how do they fit in her narrow minded viewpoint, although I hope she spares the world anymore of her indiscriminate blanket statements about people and their religion based on her limited life experience. I guess she has no major bones to pick to further insult these people and their religion as well.
This book is quite amateurish and not worth the time or money to read.
Zay Green stands tall in an arena where stones are readily thrown.
