“I led the Priorities study with a group of 18 people in a UCC church. Not only was our group challenged and enriched by the presentation of each topic in the student book, we were expertly guided in exploration and discussion by the leader’s guide. This was particularly helpful when we were not of one mind on an issue. Our group grew in understanding and genuine affection for one another. We can hardly wait for the next volume!” 

--The Rev. Carra McFadden, Dracut, MA 

"A group at Trinity Church studied this book together about a month ago. I finally finished it. It‘s about several controversial justice issues, reflected on in light of the first two of the Ten Commandments. I cannot praise it enough. It is solidly researched, compellingly written, and presented from a perspective of faith and humility. Please read it. Ask your friends, church members, and pastors to read it. Talk about it with anyone who will listen. In my opinion, everyone who identifies as a Christian should read it. It is that important and that good! We desperately need this, more now than ever."
