Can I Get a Witness?
The Project on Lived Theology’s most recent book presents the compelling stories of thirteen pioneers for social justice, each of whom engaged in peaceful protest and gave voice to the marginalized, working courageously out of their religious convictions to transform American culture. Comprising a variety of voices—Catholic and Protestant, gay and straight, men and women of different racial backgrounds—these activist witnesses represent the best of the church’s peacemakers, community builders, and inside agitators. Written by select authors, the book showcases vibrant storytelling and research-enriched narrative to bring these significant “peculiar people” to life.
