Summary
Against All Odds explores the beliefs, practices, and structures which allow integrated religious organizations to survive and thrive despite their difficulties. Based on six in-depth ethnographies of churches and other Christian organizations, this work draws on numerous interviews, so that readers can hear first-hand the joys and frustrations which arise from actually experiencing racial integration. The book gives an inside sense of what it is like to be part of a multiracial religious organization as well as a theoretical understanding of these experiences. --From publisher's description
