520    Why has Christianity, a religion premised upon neighborly 
       love, failed in its attempts to heal social divisions? In 
       this ambitious and wide-ranging work, Willie James 
       Jennings delves deep into the late medieval soil in which 
       the modern Christian imagination grew, to reveal how 
       Christianity's highly refined process of socialization has
       inadvertently created and maintained segregated societies.
       A probing study of the cultural fragmentation-social, 
       spatial, and racial-that took root in the Western mind, 
       this book shows how Christianity has consistently forged 
       Christian nations rather than encouraging genuine 
       communion between disparate groups and individuals. 
       Weaving together the stories of Zurara, the royal 
       chronicler of Prince Henry, the Jesuit theologian Jose de 
       Acosta, the famed Anglican Bishop John William Colenso, 
       and the former slave writer Olaudah Equiano, Jennings 
       narrates a tale of loss, forgetfulness, and missed 
       opportunities for the transformation of Christian 
       communities. Touching on issues of slavery, geography, 
       Native American history, Jewish-Christian relations, 
       literacy, and translation, he brilliantly exposes how the 
       loss of land and the supersessionist ideas behind the 
       Christian missionary movement are both deeply implicated 
       in the invention of race. Using his bold, creative, and 
       courageous critique to imagine a truly cosmopolitan 
       citizenship that transcends geopolitical, nationalist, 
       ethnic, and racial boundaries, Jennings charts, with great
       vision, new ways of imagining ourselves, our communities, 
       and the landscapes we inhabit.
