“Authors Robert Chao Romero and Jeff Liou have been studying CRT in academia years before the language ever graduated to popular discourse. They are trustworthy sources on what CRT actually is, and Christianity and Critical Race Theory is a very helpful, and readable, primer.

More importantly, their new book is an immense gift to the church. That is, the church that has been called to be an embodied presence that bears prophetic witness to the powers and principalities, to the rulers and authorities of our age. Romero and Liou have done the work of detailing how CRT aligns with the narratives we might discern in Scripture, and also where it doesn’t. They’ve also used that discernment to illuminate for us what many dominant narratives of church are unable, or unwilling, to see: the communal cultural wealth of colonized peoples.”
