One thought on “Letters Across the Divide: Two Friends Explore Racism, Friendship, and Faith

  1. Melinda Abney Kaiser

    Excellent dialogue type look at race and racism in post civil rights movement America The book grew out of letters the authors wrote to one another discussing their views of race and especially how their own views and experiences of race color their everyday lives For instance, given the exact same facts, their views and experience of race result in very different interpretation of those same facts For me reading this book was enhanced by the fact that every couple chapters my multi racial book [...]

  2. Thomas Christianson

    A valuable and important topic seeking cultural reconciliation in America My issue with this book was essentially that I did not at all relate to the white guy I m white, btw He s a white collar man who has basically avoided interaction with most black Americans and it seems to me willfully ignored the widespread and orchestrated disadvantages placed upon black people in this country both historically and contemporarily I say this because if you live in Chicago and aren t aware of them, you must [...]

    The greatest value of this book is that is an open, honest dialogue between two Christians who are close personal friends one black, one white about race and racism It gave me some insights why many blacks insist on being called African Americans, for example It saddened me to hear how pervasive the black man feels racism still is in this country, but it encouraged me that they agree the responses for Christian have to be repentance and forgiveness on both sides though I hesitate to use that wor [...]

    Two friends, one white and one black share a series of letters around issues of race and reconciliation Even if some of the questions and answers miss the mark, which in my view they do, the dialogue between Brent and David is an example of honest questions and answers about what it means to be black and white in America While I appreciate the honesty, my fear is that some people will take their dialogue to the definitive word on Christian race relations that would be asking this book to do tha [...]

  5. Margaret

    This book on racial reconciliation was a series of letters between two friends, one and one white It was a very inciteful and challenging The letters were written before 2001 when the book was published I was really challenged by it not to unfairly stereotype people by race All the black people that I know, I really like I was challenged not to unfairly stereotype those I don t.

  6. Julie

    This is a brutally honest dialogue between two brothers in Christ I wish all of us could have this experience They caution us not to live vicariously, but to learn from their model Awesome Things are by no means hashed out by the end of the book, but it s an awesome start to crossing the divide and tackling some of the thorniest issues in America and the Christian church.

  7. Mark Nenadov

    I wasn t very impressed with this book It does cover a very important topic and they took an interesting approach, but I felt that the conversation had a stiff and staged feel to it They seemed to avoid scratching deep enough at some points and I felt some of it was a bit patronizing.

  8. Johanna

    Dialog between two friends pastors on racial reconciliation, insightful and thought provoking, relevant look at addressing racism at the relational level Quick read.
