Customer Reviews for Baker Letters Across the Divide

Baker Letters Across the Divide

In this stirring book, two friends--a black minister and a white businessman--discuss candidly the hang-ups, stereotypes, and sins that inhibit interracial friendships. Some people may think that racism is no longer a problem in our society, but David Anderson and Brent Zuercher make an effective case for just the opposite: both blacks and whites still harbor wrong assumptions and resentments toward each other. Believing that the church is called to a deeply felt reconciliation between the races, Anderson and Zuercher strive to understand each other. They hash out their differences, giving voice to feelings most of us have had but would never express out loud. The result is a book that provokes thought, arouses emotion, and ultimately spurs action, stressing that the most effective way of dealing with the many facets of racial reconciliation is through real and connected friendships.
