  • By Jermaine J. Marshall

Show More

Product Description
Christianity Corrupted examines the development of oppressive Christian theologies and the normalization of white superiority and white privilege in the United States. Divided into three parts, the first part traces the roots of the theological scandal to the integration of the Reformed notion of election and Enlightenment theories of race, the white colonists' belief in the supposed racial inferiority of blacks, and the cultivation of proslavery theologies. The second part demonstrates how enslaved Africans formulated their own brand of Christianity and cultivated a theology of spiritual resistance of necessity in response to the oppressive theologies of their white Christian enslavers. The final part reflects on the impact of the roots of this scandal evident in the theological causes of the Civil War, the rise of Jim Crowism, rise of the Moral Majority, and the complicity of white evangelicals in the election of Donald Trump fostering the re-legitimization of white nationalism. Christianity Corrupted examines the subsequent spiritual and social resistance to the roots of this scandal as evident in the Civil Rights Movement, Black Power Movement, and Black Lives Matter movement and proposes a theological solution for Antiblackness Supremacy and White Christian Supremacy.
