This book revolutionises our understanding of race. [In this book, the author] demonstrates that the Bible - the key text in Western culture - has left [an] imprint on modern racial theories and prejudices. Fixing his attention on the changing relationship between race and theology in the Protestant Atlantic world between 1600 and 2000 [he] shows that, while the Bible itself is colour-blind, its interpreters have imported racial significance into the scriptures. [His] study probes the theological anxieties which lurked behind the confident facade of of white racial supremacy in the age of empire and race slavery, as well as the ways in which racialist ideas left their mark upon new forms of religiosity. This is essential reading for anyone interested in the histories of race or religion. -http://www.loc.gov/catdir

Really like the idea, but would've made a better journal article than a book. Too much repetition. Read full review
