"Amply documented and with helpful bibliographies, this set will appeal to all concerned about diversity in evangelical congregations, schools, and other agencies."--Choice "This Side of Heaven is a major contribution to the study of race, ethnicity, and religion. I found an incredible wealth of knowledge and insight in the book's chapters. This is a book to use in college and seminary courses, to read in your home, and to work through in small groups. Be prepared for serious discussions, as this volume if full of hard hitting chapters that cut to the core of religion, race, and ethnicity. Strongly recommended." --Michael O. Emerson, co-author of Divided by Faith and United by Faith "This Side of Heaven is unique among Christian books on multiculturalism and race because the authors combine thier social science analysis with their theological viewpoints." --Contemporary Sociology "The editors have managed to produce a volume that has unity and clarity, combining the realistic double edge of social analysis with a courageous rereading of biblical texts and a hopeful attitude in spite of discomforting facts. In short, this book represents missiology at its best." --International Bulletin of Missionary Research
