God is Not a White Man

Monday 11 October 2021

Author, Chine McDonald, joins us to discuss her latest book, ‘God is Not a White Man’.

What does it mean when God is presented as male?

What does it mean when – from our internal assumptions to our shared cultural imaginings – God is presented as white?

These are the urgent questions Chine McDonald asks in a searing look at her experience of being a Black woman in the white-majority space that is the UK church – a church that is being abandoned by Black women no longer able to grin and bear its casual racism, colonialist narratives and lack of urgency on issues of racial justice.

Chine joins us to share some of her insights and for a Q&A on how the Church is called both to lament and repair its failures, and build a future founded on justice.
