Book Review Holy Troublemakers & Unconventional Saints by Daneen Akers
I have always been a fan of reading about modern-day heroes. Unfortunately, the heroes are often from ancient days or lack diversity. In Holy Troublemakers and Unconventional Saints, Daneen Akers highlights some incredible leaders, some you may have heard of, and many you will be glad to discover.
This coffee table-styled book is filled with colorful illustrations and easy on the eye, but written in an easy-to-read, conversational style. There were numerous times around our dinner table where we selected a hero and read about their life. Each of these stories is encouraging and hopeful.
I was personally excited to read about some people I know, like, Brian McLaren, Valerie Kaur, Leslie Foster, and Jacqui Lewis. However, I learned about many more inspiring individuals, such as Danya Ruttenberg, Cindy Wang Brant, and Maryam Molkara.
We need a second volume to hail these leaders who demonstrate courage for righteous causes.
