Prejudice. It's a serious problem whether you're on the giving or receiving end, no matter what kind it is--race, gender, age, status, wealth, looks or ability. It's serious not only because of the damage it does to all parties, but because we block what God wants to give us and what we need--his power and peace. Sandra L. Barnes helps us sort out why prejudice is unfair, what feeds our prejudices, how to overcome prejudice and how to avoid being victimized by discrimination. She brings together both theological insight and sociological research to help us recognize and disarm our prejudices and to bring healing to our broken personal and societal relationships.
