Abstract:

"The primary aim of Places of Redemption is to explore the contradiction between widely shared beliefs in the USA about inclusiveness and equal opportunity for all and the fact that most churches are racially homogeneous and do not include people with profound disabilities. To address the problem Mary McClintock Fulkerson explores the practices of an interracial church (United Methodist) that includes people with such disabilities. Her analysis focuses on those activities which create opportunities for people to experience those who are 'different' as equal in ways that diminish both obliviousness to the other and fear of the other. In contrast with theology's typical focus on the beliefs of Christians, this project offers a theory of practices and place that foregrounds the instinctual reactions and communications that shape all groups." --Résumé de l'éditeur.
