The primary aim of this book is to explore the contradiction
between widely shared beliefs in the USA about racial inclusiveness
and equal opportunity for all and the fact that most churches are
racially homogeneous and do not include people with disabilities.
To address the problem Mary McClintock Fulkerson explores the
practices of an interracial church (United Methodist) that includes
people with disabilities. The 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. The effect is to broaden the
academic field of theology through the benefits of ethnographic
research and postmodern place theory.
