Mobilizing Hope


While we were at Christian Community Development Association conference a couple of weeks ago Tom & I met author Adam Taylor who really inspired us as he talked about his new book Mobilizing Hope.  My copy of the book just arrived but I will not get round to reviewing it until next week.  However I also wanted to let you know that Adam is currently on a book tour he will be in Seattle next week and would love it if some of you could join him.

Adam Taylor most recently served as a White House Fellow in the Office of Cabinet Affairs, Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs in the Obama Administration.  Prior to that, he was Senior Political Director at Sojourners, a leading faith-based advocacy organization with nation-wide impact.  He also served as the Executive Director of Global Justice, which educates and mobilizes young people to advance human rights and fight poverty.  Adam is an ordained Associate Minister at First Baptist Church in Washington DC.

Jim Wallis, author of New York Times bestseller God’s Politics writes in the foreword, Mobilizing Hope “is a story of how Adam and many of his cohorts are shaping the next strategies for faith-based social change; a theology for social justice; a spirituality for young activists; a handbook for those who want to experiment with activism and search out their own vocation in the world; and a strategy manual that draws lessons from past movements for change”.
