In this latest installment of the Homebrewed Christianity series, Eric E. Hall approaches the question of God from various perspectives. The classical conception of God is like the famously stoic-yet-lethal Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid. Competing versions of God include Your Hippie Aunt, St. Joan of Arc, and even the muscle-headed goons from Jersey Shore. At the end of this romp through history and pop culture, Hall argues that the God you need may be the very God you rejected years ago.

Brian Bantum says that race is not merely an intellectual category or a biological fact. It is a deeply theological problem, one that is central to the Christian story and that plays out daily in the United States and throughout the world. Our attempts to heal racism will not succeed unless we address a fallen understanding of our bodies. He examines the question of race, but through the lens of our bodies and what our bodies mean in the midst of a racialized world that perpetually dehumanizes dark bodies.
