Reviews
. . . This book is useful not only for casual readers who wish to develop a broader perspective on the issue of racism but also for seminary courses on race relations.--Missiology, July 2007
If pastors and lay leaders were to read this book and humbly take its principles to heart, we could see a change in race relations in this country, and our churches could be a multiracial witness to the world of reconciliation, healing and grace.--Greg Bowman, Baptist Standard, February 5, 2007
"In Beyond Racial Gridlock, George Yancey once again challenges us to think in fresh ways about the ministry of reconciliation. His assessment of the pros and cons of current strategies is extremely helpful in understanding the present state of racial reconciliation. Yancey's creative thinking further leads the reader to examine racism and the need of reconciliation in new ways using a central premise from an ancient source--the Bible. This book is a much-needed resource for pastors, students, professors, laypersons and others who hunger for a united church in a divided world."--Curtiss Paul DeYoung, associate professor of reconciliation studies, Bethel University, and author of Coming Together
