Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Accepting the notion of racialized language as a given, this volume seeks to answer two questions: “What is at stake in maintaining or challenging the religio-political narrative in America?” and “What is the role of patriotic or prophetic discourse in the United States after September 11, 2001?” The authors select sermons by Martin Luther King Jr. and Jeremiah Wright to as a framework to examine the meaning of God in America as part of the formational religio-political narrative of the country.
