Peter Heltzel and Alexia Salvatierra’s book on faith-rooted organizing now available

Peter Heltzel and Faith-RootedAlexia Salvatierra’s Faith-Rooted Organizing: Mobilizing the Church in Service to the World (Intervarsity, 2013) deals with a difficult question: With so many injustices, small and great, across the world and right at our doorstep, what are people of faith to do? In response, Heltzel and Salvatierra pose (and answer) a different question: What if Christians were to shape their organizing around the implications of the truth that God is real and Jesus is risen?

Their work provides a model of Christian social action focused on helping local communities of faith tackle issues of systemic injustice. To watch a book trailer for Faith-Rooted Organizing, click here.
