Edward J. Blum and Paul Harvey have written a marvelous book that tells the story of how Americans have envisioned Christ -- ethnically, racially, etc. from the earliest days of European presence in the New World to the present. They delve into social, political, theological, and cultural aspects of American encounters with Jesus, especially how a white Jesus came to dominate our vision of Jesus and the effect that has had on social-cultural understandings.

Take and read -- you'll benefit. Publication date is due in September.
