But more than anything else, and though it ends in tragedy, this is a story of hope: My encounter with "Grace Matters" has left me daring to hope that, even at this late date, we Christians might yet live out the true meaning of our radical creed in regard to relations between blacks and whites in the United States." -Glenn C. Loury, director, Institute on Race and Social Division, Boston University. "In a rare and deeply significant way, Chris Rice honestly probes the difficult but essential journey toward genuine racial reconciliation. It is confessional, candid, and even painful as the author bares his soul and his struggles...This is a book with a fundamental and hopeful message - that grace can become a way of life." - Jim Wallis, editor, Sojourners and convener, Call to Renewal. ""Grace Matters" is an extraordinary love story that is improbable as it was difficult. That a black man and a white man might be joined in a common love of God in Mississippi defies the imagination. But Chris Rice has helped us see that friendship-indeed a difficult friendship-is possible just to the extent a community existed in which truth mattered.
Hopefully this book will be read and read widely, not simply to inform us about 'race relations' but because the story told here is one of hope and perseverance that hopefully will make more friendships possible." - Stanley Hauerwas, author of "A Community of Character" and named by "Time" magazine as America's Best Theologian.
