13 Certainly black theology is not a monolithic reality, and not all theology by blacks stand in the tradition to which I refer here. By black theology I mean the black theology of liberation which has its roots in the tradition of Martin Luther King, J. and James Cone, the birth of which closely paralleled the birth of Latin American liberation theology. This breaking open of assumed horizons of being Catholic may very well be a Kairos or liminal moment, though painful, a path to grace. Too often white flight from the city renders the issue moot, an opportunity lost. 134 Cited in Hayes, Diana, And Still We Rise: An Introduction to Black Liberation Theology (New York: Paulist, 1996), 122.

The most important theological insight of our time is that theology is always done in the context of power. Race is inextricably linked to power and shapes not only our everyday lives but also our faith. That a white theologian tackles this topic is significant because it shows that race is not a matter of special interest for minorities alone, and that addressing race in light of the gospel of Jesus Christ provides new faith, hope, and freedom for all. --Joerg Rieger, Wendland-Cook Professor of Constructive Theology, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas An extraordinary resource for understanding how mainline U.S. constructed Christianity has privileged whiteness at the expense of all others. This volume isvital for those who want to join the liberationist ranks as allies so we can free our faith from racism and further the work of social transformation in the changing U.S. context. — Stacey M. Floyd-Thomas, Associate Professor of Ethics and Society, Vanderbilt University, Executive Director of the Society of Christian Ethics and the Black Religious Scholars Group Elaine Robinson, as a prominent white scholar, has placed herself at the margins in her scholarly work. She speaks with scholars of color whose work focuses on racism. More importantly, she speaks from them and in so doing brings vigor to the renewed debates on racism in the academy and the church. --M. Douglas Meeks, Cal Turner Chancellor Professor of Theology and Wesleyan Studies, Vanderbilt University Divinity School, Nashville, Tennessee
For those who take race seriously (we all should) this is a theologically insightful and nuanced book that de-constructs whiteness in the United States, and offers a re-construction that will begin a must needed dialogue in the academy and the church.This book will be a conversation starter like few others! -- F. Douglas Powe, Jr., E. Stanley Jones Associate Professor of Evangelism and Associate Professor of Black Church Studies,Saint Paul School of Theology With Race and Theology Elaine A. Robinson provides a critical resource for understanding the ways that race and racism have distorted the Christian faith in North America. More important, the book offers insights for what we might do about this distortion. By offering an analysis of the frequently used but, often wrongly conflated ideas of race and racism Robinson, uncovers the ways that oppressive social powers often flourish in contexts where well-meaning people would wish otherwise. In her unfolding of this analysis, Robinson introduces to not only some of the more important theologians and theorists of our day, but also to what it means to expand this conversation beyond simply black and white. In all, an important work that is useful to both academic and more popular conversations about the content of faithfulness in a race conscious society. ---Stephen G. Ray Jr., Professor of Systematic Theology, Neal A. and Ila F. Fisher Chair of Theology, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary; and Executive Director, the Society for the Study of Black Religion
