"Divine Rebels offers a much-needed corrective to the wrathful voices on the Religious Right by showcasing the underreported heroism of politically progressive Christians who reject power and privilege in favor of compassion and reconciliation." Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking
"[A] learned, readable, and immensely important work of history, journalism, and advocacy." Samuel G. Freedman, author of Upon This Rock
"[Divine Rebels] is a timely and important account of American Christian activists deeply committed to both their faith and to a better world here and now. . . . They are models for everyone who has ever wondered how personal faith relates to the injustice of the world. I highly recommend this book." Sami Rasouli, human rights activist and director of the Muslim Peacemaker Teams
