Kenneth Wheeler

US: The Resurrection Of American Terror

This is us, America. This is who we are.

In US: The Resurrection of American Terror, Evangelical Lutheran pastor Kenneth Wheeler exposes white supremacy as America’s greatest threat. Transcending the boundaries of memoir, scholarship, theology, and sharp political critique, Pastor Wheeler takes readers on his own seven-decade-long journey that lays bare the terror of being Black in America. From his childhood in Jackson, Mississippi under the trauma of Jim Crow segregation to the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, Wheeler steadily holds a mirror up to a nation drowning in a rising tide of white supremacy.US: The Resurrection of American Terror offers a deeply vulnerable and piercing portrait of the human toll of white supremacy and points to the Cross as a place of hope and reconciliation. This is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the toxic and deadly interplay between anti-Blackness, nationalism, and Christianity in America.

Craig L. Nessan

Wartburg Theological Seminary

"This revelatory book is telling, revealing, and too important not to add to the libraries of those who love the church and seek her newest reformation."

Rev. Dr. Ronald S. Bonner

"The book is important reading for us white Christians…“White supremacy” comes into light not simply as a sickness of a few on the far-right, but as deeply ingrained cultural patterns that benefit all of us who are white, and who care about justice and equality. This book should be used in study groups!"
