Join the Christian movement that loves like Jesus.

The Bible doesn't call us to like or tweet about or even vote on human need and social problems. It calls  us to act - to feed the hungry, visit prisoners, care for orphans, and bring good news to the poor. Join the cofounders of the dynamic Activist Faith movement as they share biblical contexts, personal stories, and practical guidance for engaging twelve divisive social issues. Written for Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and even those who despise religion yet love Jesus, Activitst Faith  will guide you toward speaking - and living - the truth in love.

Final Thoughts

ENDORSEMENTS:

There has been a huge need for a book to give the theological background for why Christians should engage in social justice. Activist Faith fits that need perfectly. It provides solid biblical reasons we should care about the poor, immigrants, and modern-day slaves as well as practical steps for how to take action. - Sean McDowell, educator; speaker; author of Apologetics for a New Generation.

Twenty-first-century Christ followers stand committed to reconciling the vertical and horizontal planes of the Cross: sanctification with service, holiness with humility, conviction with compassion, and righteousness with justice. In Activist Faith, the authors exhort us to find a cause greater than ourselves, one that marries the promise of salvation with prophetic activism. for a generation seeking to live out our faith, this book is a must-read. - Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference.

Activist Faith is a compelling book that deals with complex global issues. It is filled with stories of hope and struggle, helping us wrestle with what it means to have a faith that cares deeply for those who suffer. This hope-filled collaborative work will help us all learn what it means to love our neighbor. - Chris Marlow, founder and CEO, Help One Now.
