Summary

How does race shape people?

Our society is not a harmonious blend of contrasting themes but is fast becoming an enduring culture of opposition. Race and ethnicity are the most frequent topics in our national dialogue. President Clinton has appointed a panel to discuss race matters across the country. But where does the Christian church stand? How can one of the most segregated institutions in North America help to reconcile the sins of racism, bigotry, and prejudice? The Color of Faith seeks to answer these questions.

Fumitaka Matsuoka provides a theological perspective on racial and ethnic plurality that contributes to the discussion on forging a new vision of relatedness and community building across racial divides -- with his sharpest focus on the theological perspective on racial and ethnic plurality, alienation across shifting race lines, and race and justice.
