Twelve Jesus-Haunted Misfits, Malcontents, and Dreamers in Pursuit of Justice
(Wm. B. Eerdman’s Publishing Co, January 10, 2023 / $25) From the Publisher: “Narrated by some of the most galvanizing voices of the current moment, this collection of succinct and evocative biographies tells the stories of twelve modern apostles who lived the gospel mission and unsettles what we think we know about Christianity’s role in American politics.”
“As the spiritual successor to Can I Get a Witness?, People Get Ready presents a diverse cast of twentieth-century ‘saints’ who bore witness to their faith with unapologetic advocacy for the marginalized. From novelists to musicians to scientists, these courageous men and women rose to the challenges of their times. Just so, readers will reflect on their legacies in light of the challenges of today.”
