Native Americans, The Mainline Church, and the Quest for Interracial Justice
The Native American drive for self-governance is the most important civil rights struggle of our time - a struggle too often covered up.
In Native Americans, The Mainline Church, and the Quest for Interracial Justice, David Phillips Hansen lays out the church's role in helping America heal its bleeding wounds of systemic oppression. While many believe the United States is a melting pot for all cultures, Hansen asserts the longest war in human history is the one Anglo-Christians have waged on Native Americans. Using faith as a weapon against the darkness of injustice, this book will change the way you view how we must solve the pressing problems of racism, poverty, environmental degradation, and violence, and it will remind you that faith can be the leaven of justice.
"Hansen captures in his book Native Americans, the Mainline Church, and the Quest for Interracial Justice the first steps that must be taken in a conversation that is far past due for members of mainline Christianity. Hansen’s book illumines the gradual and painstaking actions of the church to recognize the harms inflicted throughout history and more importantly harms being inflicted in this present moment. Without recognizing the sinful motivations of a society built on exploitation, true wellness and harmony cannot exist. Native Americans, the Mainline Church, and the Quest for Interracial Justice is a vital first step in putting together the pieces necessary for our society to achieve racial justice." —Rev. Glen Chebon Kernell, Jr., Executive Secretary of Native American & Indigenous Ministries, Justice & Relationships, United Methodist Church
