By Bruce Bouchard on November 7, 1997
Format: Paperback
A Review of the Book Disruptive Religion: The Force of Faith in Social-Movement Activism Review by Rev. Bruce Bouchard For those of us in the church seeking to bring positive social change, the task can often be frustrating. Members of the congregation can be quite enthusiastic in caring about others in one to one relationships. They can spend hours volunteering to visit the sick and the lonely, feed the hungry, or even to share faith with those who despair. However, when it comes to standing back from the picture of individual hurts and looking at the larger panorama of systematic injustice such as poverty, human rights abuse, or war as a means of international conflict resolution, the faithful often do not seem to see the problem. Seldom is it a matter of not caring about the pain of others, rather it is a difficulty in comprehending human hurt on a systematic level. Those who try to motivate the faithful on to bring justice and responsible conflict resolution to a larger world often feel that their pleas fall on deaf ears and all their efforts are ineffective. One might be left asking the question: "Should one even bother to try?" Disruptive Religion: The Force of Faith in Social-Movement Activism, (New York and London: Routledge , 1996) an anthology edited by Christian Smith, offers an encouraging and inside look at how religious faith has influenced social change in such differing scenarios as the civil rights movement, the election of Hitler, the anti-apartheid movement, the Iranian revolution, and workers strikes in communist Poland. Unlike many works that apply the same formula to all social problems and turn the crank, the sociologists who author these essays seek insight into the special role that religion plays in each particular situation.Read more ›

I dropped the class because this book was so ridiculous. The writing is so obscure I dropped the class to avoid having to read this rubbish! Sorry!
