People Get Ready Twelve Jesus-Haunted Misfits, Malcontents, and Dreamers in Pursuit of JusticeJanuary 18, 2023 By Collegeville Institute Peter Slade Shea Tuttle Jacqueline A. Bussie Grand Rapids, MI, William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 2023 "Visit this title on the publisher's website" Meet twelve activists whose faith transformed twentieth-century America. In a political climate where Christianity is increasingly seen as reactionary, People Get Ready offers a revolutionary alternative. Narrated by some of the most galvanizing voices of the current moment, this collection of succinct and evocative biographies tells the stories of twelve modern apostles who lived the gospel mission and unsettles what we think we know about Christianity’s role in American politics. As the spiritual successor to Can I Get a Witness?, People Get Ready presents a diverse cast of twentieth-century “saints” who bore witness to their faith with unapologetic advocacy for the marginalized. From novelists to musicians to scientists, these courageous men and women rose to the challenges of their times. Just so, readers will reflect on their legacies in light of the challenges of today.
