There is an "American Way" to religion and race unlike anyplace else in the world, and the rise of religious pluralism in contemporary American (together with the continuing legacy of the racism of the past and misapprehensions in the present) render its understanding crucial.

I enjoyed reading this book! Especially for the times we're living in. It's very informative and reinforces what I know and have learned. Religion both undermines and supports racism, especially Christianity. I also had a few shocking moments. Like the law regarding the baptism of slaves and the fact that baptism does not change their status and also the role of Pentecostalism played in the Civil Rights movement. I will read this book again.
