Product Description

Prejudice. It's a serious problem whether you're on the giving or receiving end, no matter what kind it is---race, gender, age, status, wealth, looks or ability. It's serious not only because of the damage it does to all parties, but because we block what God wants to give us and what we need---his power and peace.

Sandra L. Barnes helps us sort out why prejudice is unfair, what feeds our prejudices, how to overcome prejudice and how to avoid being victimized by discrimination. She brings together both theological insight and sociological research to help us recognize and disarm our prejudices and to bring healing to our broken personal and societal relationships.

Sandra L. Barnes (Ph.D., Georgia State University) is an associate professor of sociology and African American studies at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. She has also taught at Georgia State and DeKalb Technical Institute, both in Atlanta, Georgia. Additionally, she has worked at General Electric Capitol Coporation and at Acxicom. Her scholarly work has been published in The Journal of African American Studies, Research in the Sociology of Health Care, Social Problems, Sociological Spectrum, Journal of the Interdenominational Theology Center, Journal of Black Studies, Sociological Focus, Journal of Children and Poverty and Race, and Ethnicity and Education. She is the author of The Cost of Being Poor.

Editorial Reviews

"Prejudice continues to exist and flourish in our society and world. It fosters guilt among some groups and shame among others. Dr. Sandra Barnes helps the Christian community see the problem as well as move toward transformation."
"Barnes has made accessible to nonacademics important, well-researched insights surrounding the prevalence of prejudice in our society. This clear and readable book will help Christians to think more wholistically about how to deal with individual and societal prejudice."
"Dr. Sandra L. Barnes effectively translates the insights of sociology into the language of theology in order to set us free from prejudice. This book reaches the hearts of Christian believers in the pew and in the classroom by speaking words of God's peace both to those sincerely struggling to overcome attitudes of prejudice and those painfully demeaned by ugly bigotry. True reconciliation becomes possible as we subvert the power of prejudice in the lives of individuals and in the climate of society."
"Dr. Barnes has demonstrated in this book that the bridge between prejudice and peace is the power of Christ."
"Sandra Barnes's work is fully intelligent and fully Christian, and her insights are both smart and wise. This holistic book is an essential read for Christians committed to understanding prejudice and making change."
