How a Moral Movement Is Overcoming the Politics of Division and Fear
A civil-rights activist offers up a plan for bridging America's racial and economic divide.
"A battle-hardened pastor calls for a faith-based, grass-roots movement for social justice...It's the religious component that makes his story particularly interesting. Fully aware of the suspicion Bible-speak arouses in modern progressive circles, the author still insists on viewing the justice struggle through a moral prism, one always backstopped by 'a Higher Power.'...A heartfelt dose of old-time religion mixed with modern-day activism." - Kirkus Reviews
