Lenten Book Study: Dangerous Dozen
A Dangerous Dozen:
12 Christians Who Threatened the Status Quo but Taught us to Live Like Jesus
by the Reverend Canon Chuck Robertson, Canon to the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, Forward by Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Sundays at 9AM During Lent
Meet twelve fascinating, and at times, intimidating Christian change agents who were unafraid to ask what God would have them do in the face of life’s realities, and were unafraid to go ahead and do it. Their words and actions challenged the status quo, and in so doing they showed the face of Jesus to the Church and to the world.
Whether calling us to live simply in the name of Jesus, showing us the way of genuine peacemaking, or exemplifying the true meaning of courage, the legacies of these blessed troublemakers continue to inspire us today—if we let them.
