A Political Afterlife of a Theology of Race and Conversion
The afterword considers a legacy of the Reformation’s theology of race and its skepticism towards religious converts in American politics. It suggests that although the questions about President Barack Obama religious identity—whether he is Muslim or Christian—which circulated during his presidential campaigns were politically motivated, they arise from widely held assumptions about the intersections or race, lineage, and geographical origins. These assumptions have an origin in Reformation theology.
