What effect does racism have on the spiritual component of human existence? How does the spiritual impact of racism contribute to disease? How can both the oppressor and the oppressed heal from racist behaviors and attitudes?
Racial & Ethnic Health Disparities: Building Bridges of Hope through the Holy Spirit explores these questions. Using an interdisciplinary approach, Reverend Dr. Lynda Jordan examines the relationship between the spiritual component of human existence and the onset of disease due to the disparate treatment of racism for the oppressed and the oppressors. She also discusses how the healing power of the Holy Spirit can be employed.
