    Can "White" People Be Saved?

    Triangulating Race, Theology, and Mission

    Missiological Engagements Series

    Edited by Love L. Sechrest, Johnny Ramírez-Johnson, and Amos Yong

    White normativity as a way of being in the world has been parasitically joined to Christianity, and this is the ground of many of our problems today. Written by a world-class roster of scholars, this volume develops language to describe the current realities of race and racism, challenging evangelical Christianity to think more critically and constructively about race, ethnicity, migration, and mission in relation to white supremacy.
