David Reich has written a funny, incisive novel about race, religion, and office politics. He's fearlessly unpious, observant, and witty, but he's also fair to his flawed and often enjoyably irksome characters. His gift for finding nuanced humanity in their semi-good intentions gives warmth and life to this quietly ambitious satire. -Carlo Rotella, author of Cut Time: An Education at the Fights. David Reich's thoughtful satire about a faithless Jewish editor of a magazine published by a post-Christian secular religion depicts a world where orthodoxy has replaced belief, where ideology has supplanted intelligence-a world easily mistaken for our own. -John Biguenet, author of Oyster and The Torturer's

An ode to the virtues of self-employment. Reich superbly lays out what it's like to not be self-employed--what it means to have to work for and with other people and other value systems.... --Kadzi Mutizwa in Prick of the Spindle
Reich does what all good novelists do: he transports us to a world--in this case the world of the Liberal Religion Center, with its echo-filled stairwells, its gloomy hallways and Victorian restrooms. --Peter Mladinic in The Scrambler
David Reich presents a humorous and thoughtful view on the perception of race and religion in today's world. "The Antiracism Trainings" is a choice addition to literary fiction collections. --Midwest Book Review
Historians will consult it alongside the documentary history covering the same period.... --Christopher Walton in UU World
Well-written and thought-provoking. --Nightflying
