» Download the resource sheet: Prophetic Voices: Witness to Radical Faith (download pdf file)
You will find here a collection of remarkable people whose courage and compassion echo both the ancient prophets and Jesus’ call for justice-making, for peace-making. The voices of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Mother Teresa, William Sloane Coffin, Dorothy Day, Desmond Tutu, Jim Wallis, Joan Chittister and so many others witness to radical faith, to “walking the talk,” integrating faith with practice, making Christian responsibility for the common good a no-brainer. May their willingness to be unafraid, to be prophetic, to “go against the grain,” inspire and compel us with the same courage to use our own prophetic voices.
This collection is offered as an entry for shaping adult studies. As you begin planning for fall programs- adult education, Sunday morning forums, small groups-consider using this theme. In a time when we so often are tempted to despair, these are voices that keep us faithful. The following resources are noted by B (book), C (cassette), CDR (compact disc), DVD (digital video device), PR (printed resource), VT (video). Most are available for loan from the Eastern ND Synod Resource Center.
