2014-Slow-Church-Conference_5841080It is wonderful to see my new book, Embracing the Other on this list of “Our God is Too White? Diversifying our Theology” put together by Englewood Review of Books.

Thanks Englewood for highlighting the important need to read books by non-white scholars. Thanks for including my book!

Below is an excerpt fromOur God is Too White? Diversifying our Theology”.

 

A friend of mine recently posted this NY Times article about the lack of diversity in philosophy on his Facebook wall, and speculated that its argument might also apply to theology. 

When you read theology, how many of the theologians are white men?

As a means to start diversifying our theological reading, here are 10 important books by non-white theologians. These books will undoubtedly open the gates to a host of works by other authors.
