Christianity Corrupted

The Scandal of White Supremacy
  • By Jermaine J. Marshall
Product Description
A historical theologian offers a compelling examination of oppressive Christian theologies and the normalization of white privilege in the United States. Christianity Corrupted first traces the roots of white supremacy to the integration of the Reformed notion of election with Enlightenment theories of race and the cultivation of proslavery theologies. It demonstrates how enslaved Africans formulated their own brand of Christianity and cultivated a theology of spiritual resistance to the oppressive theologies of their white Christian enslavers. Christianity Corrupted reflects on the impact of this history evident in the theological causes of the Civil War, the rise of Jim Crow, the advent of the Moral Majority, and the complicity of white evangelicals in the election of Donald Trump that served to foster the re-legitimization of white nationalism in the United States. Finally, on the basis of the spiritual and social resistance, including the Civil Rights struggle, the Black Power Movement, and Black Lives Matter, it presents a theological solution for the scandals of anti-blackness and White Christian Supremacy.
