Book Research Survey - The Church, Diversity, & Racial Reconciliation
Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. I am conducting research for a book about the church, diversity, and racial reconciliation. This survey is completely anonymous. Your honesty on each question is vitally important. There are no "right" or "wrong" answers here. All I am seeking is data.

If you are not among a religious group that shares some kind of belief in Jesus Christ, your religion is beyond the scope of my book and this research. I thank you for your time and willingness to participate anyway. Have a wonderful day!
