    Heltzel, whose previous book Jesus and Justice: Evangelicals, Race, and American Politics () investigated the role of race in evangelical politics, has several aims for Resurrection City. First, he wants white Christians, particularly evangelicals, to own up to how European and North American theologies and lived religions have benefited. Noting that the ways of interpreting the Bible now practiced in the West are patriarchal and oppressive of those in other parts of the world, Dube offers an alternative interpretation that attends to and respects needs of women in the two-thirds world. In a provocative and insightful reading of the book of Matthew, she shows us how to read the Bible as decolonizing rather than imperialist.
