Abstract "Jack Delehanty analyzes faith-based community organizing and how it can give rise to persons and groups who sustain democratic vision, multiracial commitments, and political work for structural change in society. Through a case study of large faith-based community organization in the United States, Delehanty argues that faith-based community organizing hinges on a complex cultural project: making social justice action into a means of personal moral fulfillment for people of different race, class, and faith backgrounds"-- Provided by publisher.
