Race and Political Theology


Much of the rapidly expanding literature on political theology (the relationship between religious and political ideas) has ignored race. This collection encourages us to ponder whether many attempts to theorize religion and politics are peculiarly Christian and peculiarly white, and it points us toward alternatives. For instance, much twentieth-century political theology grappled, often implicitly, with the racial/religious figure of the Jew, and there is a rich tradition of African American thought that explores intersections of religion and politics.
