Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Conventional wisdom holds that Christians, as members of a “universal” religion, all believe more or less the same things when it comes to their faith. Yet black and white Christians differ in significant ways, from their frequency of praying or attending services to whether they regularly read the Bible or believe in Heaven or Hell.
In this engaging and accessible sociological study of white and black Christian beliefs, Jason E. Shelton and Michael O. Emerson push beyond establishing that there are racial differences in belief and practice among members of American Protestantism to explore why those differences exist. Drawing on the most comprehensive and systematic empirical analysis of African American religious actions and beliefs to date, they delineate five building blocks of black Protestant faith which have emerged from the particular dynamics of American race relations. Shelton and Emerson find that Americas history of racial oppression has had a deep and fundamental effect on the religious beliefs and practices of blacks and whites across America.

About the Author

Michael O. Emerson is professor of sociology at the University of Notre Dame and director of the Du Bois Center for the Advanced Study of Religion and Race. He is author, with Christian Smith, of the award-winning Divided by Faith: Evangelical Religion and the Problem of Race in America.
