I endorsed a new book, The Space Between: Spiritual Activism in an Age of Fear (Guides to Practical Ministry) written by Matthew Braddock.
An excellent book on spirituality and religious progressivism which calls us to social action.
Should your faith and your spirituality be a matter of simply private concern, or should they connect to social action?
This book explores the disconnect between social and religious progressivism. The author maintains that both social and religious notes are essential for those who want to further a progressive agenda that creates equity and compassion, restores the dignity of all people, and ensures the full participation of all in common life, common wealth, and the common good.
The Space Between builds bridges across the space between these elements, both between social and religious belief, but also between contemplative action and active contemplation. This book is an vigorous and unashamed call for social action, but specifically a social action that grows from contemplation, but also for the balance and strength that comes from resting and waiting.
