About the book | God’s Troublemakers: How Women of Faith are Changing the World
Available to purchase or borrow from the Grace Farms Library

God’s Troublemakers is a book about women who are changing the world as leaders in the public arena and whose work is religiously or spiritually motivated. They are “socio-ethical entrepreneurs,” who have invented organizations or movements to “repair the world.” They are Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Henderson interviews, among others, Sr. Helen Prejean, the anti-death-penalty activist; Ruth Messigner, former Manhattan Borough President and now executive director of the American Jewish World service; and Helen LaKelly Hunt, who has been a national activist funding women’s causes.
