What is racism? How and why did it happen? How can we be rid of racism? This personal, spiritual, and historical journey into the roots of racism explores how the sin of racism has not been overcome in a spiritual sense despite the end of slavery more than a century ago. The Sin of Racism reviews some of the historical milestones related to racism such as, the slave trade, American slavery, pseudo-scientific racism, and today's cultural divide, through a Christian evangelical lens. Intended as a spiritual guide, this book not only helps individuals understand the roots of the sin of racism, but also helps them learn to overcome it.

[With] The Sin of Racism: How to be Set Free...Selena Johnson has gifted us with a thoughtful, well written, challenging, relevant, loving, Christ-centered effort. I pray everyone who calls himself / herself a follower of Jesus Christ will read this excellent book and puts into practice its wise admonitions. -- The Rev. Cecil Conteen Gray, Ph.D., Pastor, Northwood-Appold United Methodist Church, Baltimore, MD Ms. Johnson's discussion of the theological dimensions of racism is presented in a passionate, engaging manner...reminiscent of such female African American writers as Maria W. Stewart, Zilpha Elaw, and Marsha Woodard...The Sin of Racism...will challenge any complacency regarding race relations in the larger evangelical Christian community and beyond. -- Beverly E. Mitchell, Associate Professor of Historical Theology at Wesley Theological Seminary Selena Johnson has reminded us of a very important truth. Racism is not a skin problem but a sin problem. Thank God for the savior Jesus who can set us free, and for Selena who points us in that direction with this book. -- David A. Anderson, Senior Pastor, Bridgeway Community Church and host of the radio talk show, Reconciliation Live!
