"George Tinker is the long-awaited intellectual voice of the indigenous peoples of this Turtle Island. He speaks with the gift of immense wisdom and respect for the people's spirit and of the humble and interdependent place they occupy on the sacred earth circle."
— Henrietta Mann, Professor Emeritus of Native American Studies, Montana State University—Bozeman
"Tinker is a mature intellectual force to reckon with, and his new book reflects it. Solidly researched, closely but eloquently argued, and extraordinarily effective, Spirit and Resistance is must reading for anyone concerned with the relationship between indigenous and Christian traditions in the Americas."
— Ward Churchill, author of A Little Matter of Genocide and Struggle for the Land
"Tinker's powerful and well-reasoned thoughts are expressed in a much kinder way than some of us are likely to do. While Tinker's work is well known to scholars, it is less known to most younger readers and hence will arrive on the scene as brand-new thoughts. Just what is needed in a society that seems to be more a flock of sheep than a human enterprise."
— Vine Deloria Jr., author of God Is Red and Custer Died for Your Sins
