We love great books…
And “Just Spirituality: How Faith Practices Fuel Social Action,” by Mae Elise Cannon, is a great book!
In the book Mae explores the direct connection between a personal relationship with God and outward actions of kindness, mercy, compassion, and advocacy.
She asks questions such as:
- Why is the cultivation of one’s soul so important?
- What is different about how Christians engage in justice-oriented action as opposed to other groups?
- How might Christians learn from those who have gone before us?
- What can we do to be molded, shaped and transformed more into the image of Christ in our work of compassion and justice?
She further explores these questions by looking at the examples of seven Christian leaders, including Mother Teresa, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Martin Luther King Jr., and Oscar Romero.
Mae’s conclusion is that:
“Throughout the entire history of Christianity, holy women and men of God have shown their inner spiritual lives by active engagement in social justice in defense of the poor and oppressed.”
