God's Troublemakers: How Progressive Women of Faith Are Changing the World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a book about women who are changing the world as leaders in the public arena. Whether Christian, Jewish or Muslim their work is religiously or spiritually motivated. They are religious or socio-ethical entrepreneurs, who have invented organizations or movements to repair the world. What shaped and formed them? How do they integrate a progressive social agenda with their faith? How do they exercise public leadership in a world where women's public roles are sometimes still suspect? The book is thematically organized and touches on many of the most relevant topics being discussed today: separation of church and state, the intersection of politics and religion, the silence of the progressive left and the embodiment of authentic religious pluralism. This book claims space for progressive forms of religion in an area dominated by the Religious Right.

God's Troublemakers is based on extensive interviews with 11 women social entrepreneurs. The 3 best known are Sr. Helen Prejean, the anti-death-penalty activist; Ruth Messenger, former Manhattan Borough President and now executive director of American Jewish World Service; and Helen LaKelly Hunt, who has been a national activist funding women's causes and a leader in persuading secular feminists to make common cause with religious women.

Book News Annotation:

Presbyterian minister Henderson (Auburn Theological Seminary, New York City) has interviewed women from various faiths who are breaking the silence that the religious Left since the 1960s and are practicing new forms of ethical and religious leadership. Her perspectives include the treasure in the dark, bearing religion, living a seamless life, and a palimpsest of forces. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
