Reading Race, Reading the Bible

by

Reading Race, Reading the Bible Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Readers: General readers (college level); college, university, and seminary students; special interest for African American Christians

Synopsis:

Nash explores the role of race in the interpretation of the Bible and its pertinence to the church today. Although race is itself a modern invention, it has frequently-and lethally-been read back into the biblical narratives. Nash not only traces the modern developments and the misinterpretation of Scriptures, but also shows how indeed blackness and Africa do legitimately figure in the biblical narratives and shed new light on the Hebrew Bible, the character of God, and the legacy inherited by African American Christians.
