"Superb. . . . The first comprehensive history of modern race relations within the Episcopal Church and, as such, a model of its kind." -- Journal of American History

"A model of how good this kind of history can be when it is well researched and centers on the difficult choices faced and made by people who share institutional and faith commitments in settings that call those commitments into question." -- American Historical Review

"A well-documented and riveting story of how racism in Episcopalianism -- despite having been stripped of some of its pre-1960s overt vicious expressions -- still persists with great energy and pervasiveness today." -- Anglican and Episcopal History

"This clear chronicle of the structural ways in which white Episcopalians have attempted to create unity in Christ -- against the reluctance of powerful whites -- proceeds by making clear the preconceptions and ways of thinking that crippled even the best efforts of whites." -- North Carolina Historical Review
