(p.1) Introduction
Witnessing Whiteness

Kristopher Norris

Oxford University Press

The Introduction locates the narrative roots of white supremacy and white theology and briefly states their implications for the contemporary church and world. It outlines the methods this book will use to analyze white postliberal theology and black liberation theology in order to find the tools for an ethic of responsibility to confront white supremacy. Addressing key terms and concepts like colorblindness and whiteness, it introduces the argument that all of white theology and white Christian practice are implicated in white supremacy. After summarizing the argument that follows in the book, this introduction concludes with an outline of each of the six chapters.

Keywords:   narrative, white theology, black liberation theology, postliberalism, James Cone, tradition
