Street Saints is both a book of motivational stories about unsung heroes and a sociological study of the "faith factor," documenting faith-based programs that are treating social maladies in America. Based on eight years of hands-on experience and more than 300 interviews, Barbara Elliot takes readers on a tour of communities and institutions where faith-based initiatives are making a difference. She offers inspiration, role models, and guidelines for people who would like to give back to their own communities.
"This thought-provoking book has the potential to mobilize churches and
individual Christians, making long-lasting differences in their communities.
An appendix offers contact information for all the groups profiled."

"Street Saints powerfully portrays the difference that faith-based and community
groups---as well as faith-filled people---are making in the lives of those
in need in America. In an era of cynicism and anxiety, Street Saints offers
inspiration and hope and shows how lives are being transformed by, as
President Bush would say, America's 'armies of compassion.'"---Jim Towey,
former legal counsel to Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Director of the White
House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives
"Read Street Saints for spirit-tingling proof that faith-filled organizations and
people are making an unmistakable difference in our world.Written with
imagination and joy, this book portrays an inspiring army of 'saints' who
have been moved by God's love to practice on the street what they have professed
in the sanctuary. Street Saints will bless you!"---Dr.Virgil Gulker,
Founder and Executive Director of Kids Hope USA
"One definition of vision is simply "seeing." This book is a wonderful gift
of sight. . . the capacity to get the lens on those who each day are the heart,
hands and feet of a compassionate God who particularly loves the poor. In
reading it, I received bursts of sheer joy."---Reid Carpenter, President,
Leadership Foundations of America
