2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By David Crumm on January 2, 2010
Format: Paperback
You can fill your congregation's library with books about the role faith plays in combating our world's many problems, especially hunger, poverty and racism. I'm recommending this slim new volume from WJK Press because it's distinctively different from most of the inspirational books on social justice.

Warren Copeland is Professor of Religion and Director of Urban Studies at Wittenberg University and he's worked for many years as an elected official in Springfield, Ohio, including several terms as the city's mayor. Of course, that means you're going to read a whole lot of examples from this city situated between Dayton and Columbus.

What's so eye-opening about this book--what places it on our list of truly enlightening new books for 2010--is precisely this sleeves-rolled-up specificity in Copeland's approach. Lots of good books inspire us to feed the hungry or donate to poverty-relief programs, but Copeland opens up his briefcase and gets down to the nitty gritty of making a difference in a real-life city. For example, has your congregation ever spent time studying access, or lack of it, to hospitals in your town? Have you ever discussed the various legitimate perspectives on urban growth that local leaders may take? This is a great choice for small-group study.
