Title

Redeeming Mulatto: a theology of race and Christian hybridity by Brian Bantum (Waco, Tex. : Baylor University Press, c2016)

Description

"Brian Bantum reconciles the particular with the transcendent to account for the world as it is: mixed. He constructs a remarkable new christological vision of Christ as tragic mulatto-- one who confronts the contrived delusions of racial purity and the violence of self-assertion and emerges from a "hybridity" of flesh and spirit, human and divine, calling humanity to a mulattic rebirth. Bantum offers a theology that challenges people to imagine themselves inside their bodies, changed and something new, but also not without remnants of the old. His theology is one for all people, offered through the lens of a particular people, not for individual possession but for redemption and transformation into something new"--Back cover.
