Africa isn’t some place to drop in and solve somebody else’s problem with a magic hope wand. It’s a place where real people can inspire everyday activists like you and me. The book Into the Mud tells those stories.
This is a book for international travelers and novices to Christian justice alike. Every story brings up topics like microfinance, education, faith, health services, or urbanization, with reflection questions at the end to apply these stories to your own story.
Christine has felt the mud between her toes and has seen God at work in the dirt. This is a book of dirty theology. It’s about a God who is not scared of getting dirty, and invites us to join him in the mud. May we have the courage to roll up our pant-legs and follow.
