Can I Get a Witness?

Thirteen PEacemakers, Community-Builders, and Agitators for Faith and Justice
  • Dev Editor Charles Marsh
  • Dev Editor Shea Tuttle
  • Dev Editor Daniel Rhodes

Discover here the compelling stories of thirteen pioneers for social justice who engaged in peaceful protest and gave voice to the marginalized, working courageously out of their religious convictions to transform American culture. Their prophetic witness still speaks today.

Comprising a spectrum of voices—Catholic and Protestant, gay and straight, men and women of many different racial backgrounds—these activist witnesses represent the best of the church’s peacemakers, community-builders, and inside agitators. Written by select authors, Can I Get a Witness? showcases vibrant storytelling and research-enriched narrative to bring these significant “peculiar people” to life.
