DESCRIPTION

Short. Timely. Poignant. Pointed. Burying White Privilege is all of these and more. This is the book that everybody who cares about contemporary American Christianity will want to read. 

Many people wonder how white Christians could not only support Donald Trump for president but also rush to defend an accused child molester running for the US Senate. In a 2017 essay that went viral, Miguel A. De La Torre boldly proclaimed the death of Christianity at the hands of white evangelical nationalists. He continues sounding the death knell in this book.

De La Torre argues that centuries of oppression and greed have effectively ruined evangelical Christianity in the United States. Believers and clerical leaders have killed it, choosing profits over prophets. The silence concerning—if not the doctrinal justification of—racism, classism, sexism, and homophobia has made white Christianity satanic. Prophetically calling Christian nationalists to repentance, De La Torre rescues the biblical Christ from the distorted Christ of white Christian imagination.

 

REVIEWS
Drew G. I. Hart
— author of Trouble I’ve Seen: Changing the Way the Church Views Racism
“The doors of the church are open, and brother Miguel De La Torre has a timely word inviting everyone to finally repent and walk away from the American god of Christian nationalists so that we can live out a badass Christianity in the way of Jesus that actually struggles for liberation and justice. This is a necessary word during the Trump era, but it is the kind of enduring message we’ve always needed to be confronted with, ever since this mangled white Christianity first emerged.”
