about this item

A study of classism within the church is more than a discussion about prejudice. Prejudice may be a byproduct of classism, but classism is any kind of system of inequality based on socioeconomic status. A church that consciously or unconsciously excludes persons who are deemed lower class than the church members practices classism. In this new book, author and minister Rev. Dr. Jini Kilgore Cockroft urges the church to exercise its power to restore, empower, and include the poor and forgotten by prayerfully finding ways to deemphasize social class distinctions while learning instead to affirm and embrace the concept of the imago dei, the belief that all humans have been made in the image of God.
