Item Description...
This is a book about women who are changing the world as leaders in the public arena. Whether Christian, Jewish or Muslim--their work is religiously or spiritually motivated. They are religious or socio-ethical entrepreneurs, who have invented organizations or movements to repair the world. What shaped and formed them? How do they integrate a progressive social agenda with their faith? How do they exercise public leadership in a world where women's public roles are sometimes still suspect? The book is thematically organized and touches on many of the most relevant topics being discussed today: separation of church and state, the intersection of politics and religion, the silence of the progressive left and the embodiment of authentic religious pluralism. This book claims space for progressive forms of religion in an area dominated by the Religious Right.

God's Troublemakers is based on extensive interviews with 11 women social entrepreneurs. The 3 best known are Sr. Helen Prejean, the anti-death-penalty activist; Ruth Messenger, former Manhattan Borough President and now executive director of American Jewish World Service; and Helen LaKelly Hunt, who has been a national activist funding women's causes and a leader in persuading secular feminists to make common cause with religious women.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
To be read ... slowly  Dec 28, 2006
This is not a book I COULDN'T put down. In fact, it's a book that cries out to BE put down. It's NOT a page-turner; it's a thought-provoker. Katharine Henderson inspires a person to read, stop, think, consider, contemplate, and then start reading again. She writes about "women of faith" - and by that she means ALL faiths (not just Christian, but Jewish and Muslim as well - who have chosen lives of action, who have decided to find ways, however small, of "changing the world": of helping the poor, of defending the prisoner, of advocating for the powerless, of challenging wars, of educating the youth. I kept reflecting on how these women became moved to such actions, on how they have managed to make things happen, and on how they have found it possible to continue with their work. These women are visionaries, certainly, but they're also very practical. They don't just sit back and imagine how things could be; they go out and make things different. They attend meetings, work on committees, write letters, raise money, demonstrate, argue, speak, march, and struggle. Read it slowly. Take your time. Let these women's marvelous stories move you
One of the best books I've ever read  Dec 14, 2006
This book is full of the wisdom gained from people who live in the grit of life while making their contribution to Humanity. Henderson writes with depth, wisdom, and clarity. This book should be read by women who want to have a deep insight into how they can fully be powerful in the world. This book should be read by people who want to enter into the world of making an effective difference.

I keep telling my wife how much I love this book and she tells me I've never spoken about a book in this way before. I've underlined so many pages that I can't lend it anyone so I've bought 6 as holiday gifts.

This is a book for moral, social entrepreneurs.
