"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."
