Publisher's Description

It's easy to feel overwhelmed by all of the injustices that we see in the world. We don't know what to do and might think that we don't have anything to offer. But by using our gifts in collaboration with others, we can do more together than we ever could on our own. Activist Terence Lester knows it's hard to change the world. But mobilizing and acting together empowers us to do what we can't do as isolated individuals. Lester looks at the obstacles that prevent us from getting involved, and he offers practical ways that we can accomplish things together as groups, families, churches, and communities. He helps us find our place in the larger picture, discerning the unique ways we can contribute and make a difference. By connecting with our neighbors and discovering our own paths of service, we can drastically change how we follow Christ and see God moving in the world. Togetherness and community give visible testimony of the power of the gospel. In this broken world, the body of Christ can transform society—when we stand together.

Editorial Reviews

"Christian minister and activist Lester . . . issues a fiery call to action for those concerned about the rise of social injustice. Writing in a conversational tone, Lester strings together inspirational passages from the Bible, Martin Luther King Jr.'s speeches, and quotes from articles and documentaries that invite readers to 'make a long-term commitment to live according to God's call for us to come alongside others.' Readers looking to make a difference but unclear about how to begin would do well to start here."
