From the back cover:
In our efforts to build a better world, it often feels like nothing we do matters. The vulnerable continue to be oppressed, and justice for all seems like a distant dream. No matter how hard we work, little seems to change.
In this love letter to the weary activist, Timothy Murphy reflects on his own journey of disappointments and defeats and rediscovers a faith in a God who inspires us to keep fighting, even when it feels like we are losing the battle. Murphy’s stories about fellow activists across social justice movements will encourage you on your own journey to find hope in an unjust world.
“This is an indispensable guidebook for activists who need reactivating. When your hope flags, grab this book and read!” ~Catherine Keller
“In the context of repeated failure and hopeless odds, Murphy calls us to keep on keeping on.” ~John B. Cobb, Jr.
