Last year Miguel De La Torre, in conjunction with many others, launched the Journal of Race, Ethnicity, and Religion. This online journal focuses on the intersection of race and ethnicity with religion and theology. De La Torre explains the purpose of the journal here.
As someone deeply interested in issues of race, religion and theology in the United States and globally, I am grateful that a journal like this now exists. One of the best resources it provides – for scholars and “lay” persons alike – is a list of fifty recommended books that deal with the intersection of these topics. Classic and contemporary texts are included in the list. If you are at all interested in race, religion or theology you should check out the list and begin reading through it.
For what it’s worth, I’ve read all or part of only thirteen of the books myself. I guess I’ve got lots of work to do!
