Reviews - What do customers think about Prayers for the New Social Awakening: Inspired by the New Social Creed?

Linking faith and justice  Feb 13, 2009
This book anchors social justice concerns in faith with prayers by many well-known Christian leaders. It also reviews the history of the Social Creeds of 1908 and 2008. Comprehensive and challenging.
 
Might I suggest a resource?  Oct 11, 2008
Might I suggest a book and an author whose writings and speeches are consistent with creating heaven on earth, for all of us? The author is Henry George, and his best known book was "Progress & Poverty." I would also recommend his book of essays, "Social Problems."

He provides concrete solutions -- and his solutions lead toward economic justice, an end to poverty, a reversal of sprawl and to a more sustainable environment and economy and community.

Is there something in that paragraph you would prefer not to have?

You might also look for some of his speeches -- "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thy Kingdom Come," "The Crime of Poverty" and "Moses," to name a few, to get a sense of his diagnosis and his proposal.

Praying is not enough. Enlightening ourselves and working for justice and peace on the earth is vital. Henry George provides the light.
