These are some of my recent books dealing with anti-Christian bias and racism.
Beyond Racial Division
A Unifying Alternative to Colorblindness and Antiracism
Winner - 2022 Christianity Today's Public and Public Life Book of the Year.
I offers an alternative approach to racial relations where all parties contribute and are mutually accountable to one another for societal well-being. He provides empirical rationale for how collaborative conversations in a mutual accountability model can reduce racial division. History and societal complexity mean that different participants may have different kinds of responsibility, but all are involved in seeking the common good for all to thrive. Avoiding unilateral decisions that close off dialogue, Yancey casts a vision for moving beyond racial alienation toward a lifestyle and movement of collaborative conversation and mutuality.
So Many Christians, So Few Lions
Is There Christianophobia in the United States?
This is a provocative look at anti-Christian sentiments in America. Drawing on both quantitative and qualitative research, the authors do not attempt to show the prevalence of anti-Christian attitudes but rather to document it, dig into where it exists, explore who holds these attitudes, and examine how this bias plays itself out in everyday life.
Beyond Racial Gridlock
Embracing Mutual Responsibility
Surveys a range of approaches to racial healing that Christians have used and offers a new model for moving forward. The first part of the book analyzes four secular models regarding race used by Christians (colorblindness, Anglo-conformity, multiculturalism and white responsibility) and shows how each has its own advantages and limitations. Part two offers a new "mutual responsibility" model, which acknowledges that both majority and minority cultures have their own challenges, tendencies, and sins to repent of, and that people of different races approach racial reconciliation and justice in differing but complementary ways.
Transcending Racial Barriers
Toward a Mutual Obligations Approach
Offers a fresh perspective on how to combat racial division. Dr. Michael Emerson and I document the historical move from white supremacy to institutional racism. We then look at modern efforts to overcome the racialized nature of our society. We offers what is at once a balanced approach towards dealing with racial alienation and a bold step forward in the debate about the steps necessary to overcome present-day racism.
