With renewed energy around social justice, many young people of faith are trying to figure how to engage in today's pressing issues. The civil rights movement remains a paradigmatic model, but also one whose lessons need to be brought into present-day struggles.
Rev. Adam Taylor's new book, Mobilizing Hope: Faith-Inspired Activism for a Post-Civil Rights Generation (InterVarsity Press), "is a story of how Adam and many of his cohorts are shaping the next strategies for faith-based social change; a theology for social justice; a spirituality for young activists; a handbook for those who want to experiment with activism and search out their own vocation in the world; and a strategy manual that draws lessons from past movements for change," writes Jim Wallis in the forward.
