Change is never easy, and it is most threatening to those in institutional power, whether in society or the Church. Yet there are times when transformation is sorely needed, and it usually takes "troublemakers" to help bring it about. This book explores twelve of these fascinating at times, intimidating men and women. These Christian change agents were not afraid to challenge structures that would divide and repress, showing the world a different way of living. Throughout history, others have sought to canonize and control these individuals, but their faith, their vision, their courage continues to inspire us today if we let them. Each profile will include a glimpse into the person's life and lasting legacy, historical reactions to each person's extraordinary actions, questions for reflection, and suggestions for further study. Profiles include: The Apostle Paul; Mary Magdalene; Francis of Assisi; Thomas Cranmer; Archbishop Oscar Romero; Dorothy Day and more.
