"This aptly titled handbook is both accessible and highly practical. I thank my Lutheran sisters and brothers for reminding  us who belong to different branches of the Jesus Movement that our lives as Christians are about  faith in action, everywhere, all the time."

The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry | XXVII Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church

This book can equip you and your church to become even saltier and brighter as you engage the vital social justice concerns of our time.

"Jesus calls his followers to be salt and light in this world. This book can equip you and your church to become even saltier and brighter as you engage the vital social justice concerns of our time in bold, authentic, and faithful ways so that together we can make the world a better place for every single person."
