DISSERTATION

“A Divine Solution: Unconditional Love as the Antidote to Racial Discrimination in the US Army.”
 

Dr. Mason developed this dissertation as an answer to his first book, “Persecuted to Love.” His desire to know how and why this type of abuse occurred led to the process of studying and undertaking extensive research to determine the history of racism within the US Army. With the help and assistance of Army Chaplains, he developed a ministry project to constitute an effective contextualized biblical model to counteract the effects of racism in the US Army. Dr. Mason’s goal presented a proposed curriculum that can be utilized to teach chaplains at the Chaplain Officer Basic Leadership Course in Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

The Method for Analyzing the Problem for this ministry project was supported by a panel of chaplain experts who provided a critique of Dr. Mason’s Proposed Pillars of Reconciliation. These Proposed Pillars of Reconciliation for the army were modeled after the South African, Truth and Reconciliation Commissions.

 

The research objective of this dissertation project presented “A Divine Solution: Unconditional Love as the Antidote to Racial Discrimination in the US Army.” The results obtained from the research provided insight into how to identify the problems of racial discrimination, and what the needs are to support and protect those who are facing the abuse. The solution is and will always be God’s, unconditional love.
