REL 321 - The Bible and Race in the United States of America

4.00 credits.
Since the nation’s inception, the Bible has factored into the politics of who may realize the American Dream. The Promised Land motif has enticed many, but numerous communities have gone to great lengths to transfigure themselves into one of the chosen people’s tribes. We will study the Bible’s role in the politics of who is and isn’t properly American. Our exploration will lead us to questions about the invention of religion, scriptures, and race.
