Reviews

"In Embrace: God's Radical Shalom for a Divided World, Leroy Barber draws from decades of ministry among diverse people to argue for the centrality of relationships across differences to achieving not just reconciliation, but true justice. Encouraging, openhearted words for divisive times."

--Sojourners, January 2017

"Barber also provides ways to work toward the goal of action. The steps are small--visiting an African-American museum, or watching a movie with a predominately black cast--but they are also essential. Few white people will (or can) jump fully into new community, and overcome a lifetime of being subtly imbued with racial bias. Through Embrace, Barber gives those brand new to the idea of racial justice the baby steps it might take to get these readers closer to a giant leap."

--Jamie Calloway-Hanauer, Sojourners, 10.18.16
