Written for Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and even those who despise religion yet love Jesus. Activist Faith will guide you toward speaking—and living—the truth in love.

For a generation seeking to live out our faith, this book is a must-read.”

Jen Hatmaker

Author of "7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess"

“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.”
