FROM CLASSISM TO COMMUNITY

A Challenge for the Church

Cockroft offers a historical analysis of the origin of "classism" in the church and its influence in the development of African American denominations. Referencing the works of a broad spectrum of evangelical witnesses, she urges the church to exercise its power to restore, empower, and include the poor and forgotten by finding ways to deemphasize social class distinctions while learning to affirm and embrace the concept of the imago dei, the belief that all humans have been made in the image of God.
