If you were born in America, you are prejudiced says Alice Brown-Cooper. Claiming that the history of slavery and oppression runs so deep through American institutions and culture so as to be inescapable, she turns most of her attention to the problem presented by racism in the Christian Church. Applying sociological insight to biblical understandings of sin, salvation, unity, and transformation, Brown-Cooper argues that Christianity offers a way of reconciliation that is unmatched among its alternatives.
