God of Intimacy and Action: Reconnecting Ancient Spiritual Practices, Evangelism, and Justice

Jossey-Bass / 2008 / Paperback

Stock No: WW345217


Product Description

If you've read writings by early Christians or saints like Francis of Assisi, it becomes clear that there was little separation between their faith in Christ and how they lived. Their devotion and intimate relationship with God propelled them to care for the poor, feed the hungry and teach the Gospel truth of Christ. In The God of Intimacy and Action, Tony Campolo and Mary Albert Dawning explore the connection between ancient Christian practices and the call to social justice in today's world. Discover how intimacy with God fuels a passion for the poor and oppressed.

Publisher's Description

Praise for The God of Intimacy and Action

"Tony Campolo...and Mary Darling...are like gunpowder and a spark. The result is a dynamite book that many have been waiting a long time for."
Relevant Magazine

"In 25 years, when we look back as journalists chronicling this era of religious reawakening—this book likely will turn up as a classic....This book is both a manifesto—and a sturdy guidebook—for the journey of reclaiming much that has been lost."
—David Crumm, founder of Read the Spirit

"Tony Campolo and Mary Darling...are two first rate minds grappling with classical and contemporary theology, and then adding to that a set of concrete practices...The Network of Spiritual Progressives (including those of us who are not Christian) can draw much wisdom and guidance from this book."
Tikkun Magazine

"I know both Tony and Mary personally and can testify to the genuineness of their search for spiritual wholeness. It is a search that always holds in creative tension a profound intimacy with God through Christ with a vigorous engagement in the social realities of our day."
—Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline

"Darling and Campolo sift through the dirt of Christendom and uncover the precious treasures of our faith."
—Shane Claiborne, founding member of The Simple Way community; author of The Irresistible Revolution; and recovering sinner
