Singing in a Strange Land is a book of imaginative journey, religious resources, and suggestions for action designed especially for North American Christians to pray with poor and marginalized, and to act for justice on their behalf. Its underlying theme is orthodox: that spirituality and action for justice are necessarily interconnected in the Christian faith. Seven imaginative narratives elicit a sense of the connections that both bind people socially and create and maintain conditions that foster poverty and marginalization. Biblical reflections and prayers from world religions provide a sound basis upon with readers can begin to pray with those who fall outside the mainstream.
