Reading Race, Reading the Bible


"Nash explains how race has been debunked as a biological category even as Western culture has used race as a theological, political, and economic weapon. Here he briefly traces the historical misinterpretation of scripture and shows that reading the Bible via genealogy, geography, anthropology, and theology can accentuate its Afro-Asian connections. Ultimately, he maintains, the histories of Israel and Judah cannot be separated from their African roots."
