Much of evangelical theology has been slow to acknowledge the perennial problem of racism present both in America as well as around the world. From Every People and Nation serves as an outstanding contribution to constructing a biblical theology of race, which provides a much needed corrective to the harmful racial preconceptions present within North American and European scholarship, art, and other media. Of particular interest is the role of the Cushites (black Africans), who play a prominent role in the Old Testament, but receive very little scholarly treatment or attention. Hays's analysis insightfully draws attention to the racial make-up of ancient biblical peoples and provides a strong foundation for Christian theology as the Church faces the present challenges of racism as well as ministry within various multi-racial and multi-ethnic environments.
