Full Product Description
Activist and historian Mae Elise Cannon explores the direct connection between Christians' personal relationship with God and outward actions of kindness, mercy, compassion and advocacy. She looks at how notable Christian leaders were able to face societal challenges because of the rich depths of their spiritual practices. For example:
- Mother Teresa's practice of silence compelled her to service.
- Dietrich Bonhoeffer's prayer life equipped his discipleship.
- Martin Luther King Jr.'s beloved community empowered his proclamation.
- Oscar Romero's discipline of submission prepared him to face martyrdom.
Biographical profiles of these and other key figures from around the world give us concrete examples of how activism and advocacy can be sustained over the long haul. Cannon also describes modern-day activists who embody the synergy of faith and action, with practical lessons for our own lives.
Find yourself spiritually transformed by these examples, and follow in their footsteps in just service to the world.
Just Spirituality by Mae Elise Cannon was published by IVP (USA) in February 2013. The ISBN for Just Spirituality is 9780830837755.

"Mae Cannon reminds us that we, too, are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses. They call us to a life that is more deeply connected to God and more fully poured out for the broken and bruised world that he loves. There is power and calling in her wise guidance into just spirituality." - John Ortberg
"This book helps us to develop the kind of deep and pervasive spirituality that can provide motivation and inspiration for activists committed to social justice. Along with her own concrete directives, Mae Cannon taps into the resources of saints both ancient and modern who can nurture those who will to do God's work in the world." - Tony Campolo
