Hi <<First Name>>,
What if you could encounter a richly-illustrated, well-written 'children's' book that profiles progressive faith leaders across the ages to inspire readers of all ages?
You would have Holy Troublemakers and Unconventional Saints, an illustrated children’s storybook featuring stories of people of diverse faiths who worked for more love and justice in their corner of the world, even when that meant rocking the religious boat. These are people from different traditions and time periods who spoke truth to power and did the right thing, even when it was the hard thing. These are not perfect people, but they are people we can glimpse the holy through.
This book is illustrated with a variety of artistic styles (more than two dozen artists created original portraits). Holy Troublemakers & Unconventional Saints emphasizes the stories of women, LGBTQ people, people of color, Indigenous people, and others too often written out of religious narratives. The book is written for middle grade age children (and their adults) ages 8 and up.
Featuring voices as diverse as Rachel Held Evans, Bayard Rustin, Mary Oliver, and Jalal al-Din Rumi, meet some of the holy troublemakers featured in this book here.
There’s a growing community of progressive families of faith as well as grandparents, godparents, aunts, uncles, pastors, and teachers who want better faith-based content for kids. These are the faith heroes we want our children inspired by. These are the holy troublemakers and unconventional saints whose portraits and profiles we want on our children's bedside tables.
This book sold out over Christmas, but is now available again for readers - and for you to review, on a first-come, first-served basis.
