TAKING APART BOOTSTRAP THEOLOGY

Gospel of Generosity and Justice

Author Terrell Carter unites scholarly critique with practical wisdom in this new book that exposes the racist and classist assumptions entangled in the rugged individualism of what he calls “bootstrap theology.” Dismantling both the impossible idiom of “pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps” and the social theory of Marx’s Protestant Work Ethic, Carter challenges the reader to advance a more faithful gospel, one that extends a spirit of generosity and a call to social justice for all God’s people.

WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR SOME

The Bible, the Constitution, and Racism in America

In this important work, Smith examines how our country's foundational documents—the Bible and the Constitution—have failed people of color and asks whether those whom a nation has considered “we the problem” can ever become “we the people” who are celebrated in the Preamble to the Constitution. What will it take to reclaim the transforming and affirming power of God and government to secure liberty and justice for all?

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.
