Endorsements

Everyone should read George Yancey's pioneering work on extreme hostility toward Christians. It is data-based, balanced and practical.
-Tony Carnes,
publisher and editor, A Journey through NYC Religions, nycreligion.info

George Yancey is a sociologist of consequence, and Hostile Environment represents his most significant research yet. In the book, Yancey provides a perceptive scholarly analysis of Christianophobia. He unpacks the root causes of anti-Christian hostility and helps Christians understand how to respond with wisdom, love and equity. Highly recommended.
-Bruce Riley Ashford,
associate professor of theology and culture, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

Hostile Environment is a clearly-written summary of the increasing harassment of Christians. Some will want to withdraw from American society and become the twenty-first century Amish, but it will be better to learn from George Yancey and peaceably but firmly confront anti-Christian bigotry.
-Marvin Olasky,
editor in chief, World News Group

Christians working in the seats of power of the culture (e.g., universities, media, government) regularly experience challenges from those who oppose any sign of Christianity in the public arena. George Yancey's book Hostile Environment combines empirical evidence with fair-minded, exacting analysis. Yancey has written a set of carefully reasoned principles and examples for Christians to consider in advancing their voices in what Richard John Neuhaus called 'the naked public square.' The book describes the underlying reason for the nakedness of the public square and the characteristics of those who aim to maintain its secularity. It offers principled remedies to all those who struggle to share the unique and productive knowledge that is in Christ to a society that thinks it has outgrown him. The work is fair minded, carefully researched, clearly reasoned and courageously argued.
-Mary Poplin,
Claremont Graduate University

Yancey urges us to get in the war in an honorable way, adding our courage and insight for cultural survival and renewal. At times we're to fight fire with fire. That might mean calling out bigotry and hate where you see it. Love speaks. Love tells the truth. Love risks. Love does not fail.
-Kelly Monroe Kullberg,
founder, The America Conservancy and The Veritas Forum
