Journeys to Justice: Reflections on Canadian Christian Activism by Joe Gunn offers a wealth of personal stories on a host of faith-based political issues.
Gunn looks at the creation of Canada’s refugee policies; Indigenous rights and the Mackenzie Valley pipeline proposal; Catholic bishops and economic justice; the churches and South African apartheid; violence against northern women; a challenge against the market economy; a defence of medicare; the women’s march for rights; and global debt cancellation.
Behind each of these issues there is a personal story collected by Gunn, who happens to be a friend of mine. Some of them are inspirational; many of them provide a role model for young people. That’s no accident. Gunn begins the book with a preface directed to his own twin children, Benjamin and Daniela.
