What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Against All Odds whets our appetite for a larger research study using hundreds of churches. It is a welcoming beginning.”
-Missiology

,

“Breaks new ground by offering us a much better understanding of the operation of both religious congregations and race relations in the U.S. The research is impressive, the analysis smart, and the insights and implications important. This is a unique and significant book.”
-Christian Smith,University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

“Draws on six case studies to propose a nuanced theory of the dynamics associated with the success or failure of multicultural congregations. This book honestly confronts the issues related to taking part in or pastoring an integrated congregation.”
-Donald E. Miller,Executive Director, Center for Religion and Civic Culture, University of Southern California
