If you've ever browsed the self-help sections of any bookshop, you'd be forgiven for thinking that all we need to do in order to have a better life is to work hard, take exercise and get thin.
Yet Christian activism calls us to a bigger vision of what life is for. It dares to suggest that Christians change the world for the better.
In 12 Rules for Christian Activists, Ellen Loudon and a host of contributors present 12 accessible and practical principles to encourage a new generation to create a movement for positive social change.
Each chapter combines clear theological insight with inspiring stories told by activists and practitioners, including Naomi Maynard (activist researcher), Richard Peers (spiritual director), Angus Ritchie (Director, Centre for Theology and Community), and Nadine Daniel (Church of England National Refugee Coordinator).
"This book is a treasure trove - a rare blend of rigorous theology, sustained engagement with Scripture, reflection on social theory, profound practical experience and inspirational storytelling. Ellen Loudon has brought together a team of exceptionally gifted activists and here they share their riches in an accessible and invigorating way. Read it and you will not be disappointed." -- Pete Wilcox
