Abstract:

"Every day we are confronted by challenging societal problems, from poverty and institutional racism to AIDS and homelessness. It can all seem so overwhelming. But while none of us can do everything, all of us call do something. This handbook will help you discover what you can do." "Mae Elise Cannon provides a comprehensive resource for Christians committed to social justice. She presents biblical rationale for justice and explains a variety of Christian approaches to doing justice. Tracing the history of Christians in social engagement, she lifts out role models and examples from the Great Awakenings to the civil rights movement. A wide-ranging catalog of topics gives background information about justice issues at home and abroad." "The handbook includes dozens of practical exercises for taking action, highlighting how Christians and churches can make a difference. Also included are spiritual practices and resources to help us move from immobility to advocacy." "God has always worked through his people to accomplish improbable tasks. This handbook is an essential companion for living justly, loving mercy and walking humbly with your God."--Jacket.
