"White Too Long is a powerful and much needed book. It is a
direct challenge to white Christians to finally put aside the
idolatry of whiteness in order to release the country and
themselves into a different possibility. With clarity of moral
vision, historical nuance, and the sensitivity of an artist's pen,
Jones has written a critical book for these troubled times."--Eddie

"White Too Long is meticulously researched and compelling throughout. It's also a damning moral indictment of the way white supremacy has infected the white church in the United States from its very beginnings--which lays bare the need, now more than ever, for white Christians to systematically repent of white supremacy."--Jim Wallis, Founder and President of Sojourners; author of Christ in Crisis? Why We Need to Reclaim Jesus
"A refreshing blend of historical accounting, soul-searching reflection, and analysis of white supremacy within the American Christian identity. . . . Jones's introspective, measured study is a revelatory unpacking of influence and history of white Christian nationalism."
