What impels a Mohandas Gandhi or a Martin Luther King, Jr.?How does religious experience animate a lifetime of dedicationand drive for social justice?

In this instructive and inspiring account, Christian ethicist CurtissDeYoung profiles three of the most dynamic and influentialreligious activists of the twentieth century: Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Malcolm X, and Aung San Suu Kyi - each from a differentgeneration, a different faith community, and a different continent.His portraits show how their mystic faith drove them to justicecommitments and beyond customary boundaries between peoplefrom other traditions, countries, and ways of life.

Living Faith is more than a set of inspiring portraits. It alsopowerfully analyzes how these figures - along with such otherluminaries as Rigoberta Mench, Nelson Mandela, WinonaLaDuke, Fannie Lou Hamer, Elie Wiesel, Thich Nhat Hanh, andthe Dalai Lama - shared a fiery core experience and commoncharacteristics that empowered their lives and work.
