Description of Divine Rebels: American Christian Activists for Social Justice by Deena Guzder

"Divine Rebels" chronicles the extraordinary efforts of American Christian activists who agitate for a world free of racism, patriarchy, bigotry, retribution, ecocide, torture, poverty, and militarism. While pundits speak of the "Religious Right," this is the underreported story of American Christians who are progressive "because" they are religious. They don't see themselves simply performing good work, but "Godly" work. They believe in a community based on ethics, a world with infinite potential for improvement, and an inclusive God of love. These rabble-rousers are small in number, and their efficacy is best measured on the margins, but they are part and parcel of an American tradition that began with the nation's earliest Quaker abolitionists.By profiling social justice activists on the frontlines of the "Christian Left" since the 1960s, "Divine Rebels" articulates a forward-thinking, faith-based alternative to both the conservative drone warping religion as well as the political left's alienating cynicism.
