Document
The authors select sermons by Martin Luther King Jr. and Jeremiah Wright to as a framework to examine the meaning of God in America as part of the formational religio-political narrative of the country. The idea of reclaiming prophetic dimensions of the Christian heritage arises from the fact that God calls us to think and act in relation to all spheres of human experience - social, political, economic, and religious. Religio-Political Narratives in America situates Martin Luther King, Jr. and Jeremiah Wright within a larger tradition of the American jeremiad - which uses rhetoric in calling the nation to account - and black church traditions as a framework that informs a socio-contextual assessment of veracity, patriotism, and prophetic proclamation. The authors examine ways in which the deep roots of the prophetic Christian heritage point to hope and justice as key themes throughout history, and serve as a resource to assess intersections of politics and religion today in the United States. Of utmost concern for the authors is how normative representations are processed through racial discourse as a means to shape and influence public opinion
