Bob acknowledges that this book could not have been written without the generous support of the Kenan Faculty Development funds, the Guilford College Study Leave program and the Academic Dean's Research Fund.

The book's publication contains a rewarding Guilford community connection. One of the book endorsements was given by Thomas Shapiro, a renowned scholar and author in the field as well as a Guilford College parent (2015).
