A Wake Up Call to the Needs of a Growing Global Society
Dillon Burroughs, Daniel Darling, and Dan King, co-founders of the Activist Faith Movement collaborate in “Activist Faith – From Him and For Him. The authors skillfully blend engaging stories, Biblical principles, and carefully presented analysis of issues facing an increasingly global society. They have a united goal to challenge the reader to rethink their world view, their involvement in politics, and their cutting edge responsibility as a Christian to important societal issues in light of faith and culture, and to encourage Christians to live out what they believe.
The book is written for an emerging generation of Christians as well as for Christians at every walk of life. Each chapter is packed with informational tools, resources, guidelines, encouragement and support presenting ways to influence and become actively involved in meeting the needs of the hurting.
Well-developed chapter notes provide the reader with additional reading and equipping tools for joining others in communities of faith to reach out locally with the love and compassion of Jesus, God’s Son, the motivation of our worship and service.
“The Activist Faith” has given me a new appreciation for the complexity of issues of immigration, poverty, homelessness, prison reform, education, and the environment.
