The Bible tells of Naaman the Syrian, who entered the Jordan River to be cleansed. Comparing the affliction of racism to Naaman's illness, Enter the River by Jody Miller Shearer invites readers into their own healing. He explores definitions of prejudice and racism, the different effects of racism on white persons and people of color, affirmative action, and many other issues. The accessible presentation provides a strong foundation for study and action.

User Review  - Tony Ruble - Goodreads

Didn't realize how "racist" I was until I read this. It is very thought provoking and leaves you unhappy with racial relations as they are. Read full review
