"Although race has been a focus of public conversation in the U.S., not many people are talking about the way geography has fueled the racial divide and continues to fragment us. David Leong introduces us to the tangled history of race and geography with a keenly theological mind that imagines reconciliation for God's people."

--Relevant, Jan-Feb 2017

"Leong's Race and Place is a one of the most graceful and optimistic takes on race in the United States in recent memory."

--Baptist Standard, November 2, 2016

"In drawing connections between race and place, Leong's book is a welcomed addition to the literature surrounding urban ministry and racial reconciliation. Race and Place has the potential to push the conversations surrounding Christian Community Development in fruitful directions. Hopefully, it will encourage readers and practitioners to further explore the theological issues at play in the intersection of race and place."

--Andrew T. Draper, Englewood Review of Books, Lent 2017
