Different faiths, shared hopes. Are we more alike than we know? In these first-person stories from diverse voices of faith, hear from people whose faith leads them to seek justice and work for love amidst our world's violence and divisions. Gain a deeper understanding of the diverse beliefs practiced by your neighbors and our shared hopes for building a better world. Reflection questions with each chapter make this book perfect for small group study or read as a private devotional. Acting on Faith inspires hope and encourages personal action through concrete examples of faithfulness, justice, and love from those on the front lines of activism and advocacy. A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to Habitat for Humanity of Wake County's Interfaith Build.
