Sometimes you just need a word from the Lord. In these daily devotions, Donna Barber offers life-giving words of renewal and hope for those engaged in the resistance to injustice. When you face adversity, you can take courage. When you grapple with discouragement, you can find hope. When your legs are tired from marching and your knees are bruised from kneeling, you can experience rest and healing. Find here bread for the resistance.

Editorial Reviews

"Some people write with beautiful words, and others speak through their character. Donna Barber excels at both. She writes with clarity and an unmatched depth of insight and has the reputation and longevity of someone who has something to teach us all. This devotional was exactly what I needed. Bread for the Resistance will refresh your soul and become the one book this year you give to everyone you know."

-- Ken Wytsma, author of The Myth of Equality, founder of The Justice Conference

"Donna has experience in sustainable life-giving transformational ministry. Her book has given us the gift of those practices that continue to fuel this work of shalom and justice. Her wisdom is seen in how she invites us to change the world through rebirth, good news, and love while paying attention to the reality of suffering. Donna envisioned and created the devotional that I wish I was given in my toughest days of pastoral and community work."

-- Sandra Maria Van Opstal, executive director, Chasing Justice

"Donna Barber has written one of the most timely devotionals of our generation. Bread for the Resistance will help you stay connected to the sustaining power of God's word so that your prophetic work is always rooted in the grace of God. I guarantee you've never read a devotional like this, and you will come to it over and over again."

-- Jonathan Brooks, pastor and author of Church Forsaken

"In a world of feel-good soundbites and curated social media lives, Donna Barber offers us words that acknowledge the hard work of justice and hope even when change doesn't seem obvious. She can do this because she does the work of justice, walking in faith, and I am so grateful for such a wise guide."

-- Kathy Khang, author of Raise Your Voice

" Bread for the Resistance is a must-read for all Christians committed to bringing about biblically centered justice in the world. These devotionals are powerful readings that help connect our individual faith journeys with our call to transform systems of injustice in the world. In doing so, this book demonstrates the fullness of biblical witness that speaks both to individuals and systems. Donna Barber has provided us an invaluable resource that can be used by church groups, organizers, or individuals for biblically grounding our work for justice as well as expanding our understanding of what biblical justice is. Bread for the Resistance also addresses the personal cost in striving for justice by providing a healing balm and nourishment for the soul when we face barriers, burnout, or discouragement. Read, you will be refreshed!"

-- Andrea Smith, Evangelicals 4 Justice and NAIITS: An Indigenous Learning Community

"As a Christian leader with a lifelong commitment to whole-gospel discipleship, I often struggle to find a devotional guide that speaks into all aspects of my faith and life. Donna Barber's book is a treasure. Her courageous honesty and vulnerability, rooted in a profound and vibrant relationship with Jesus that leads her into a life of radical faithfulness, brings me home every time. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who needs bread for the journey."

-- Alexia Salvatierra, coauthor of Faith-Rooted Organizing
