About-

Like a good gumbo from the author's hometown of New Orleans, this book is rich fare. SALTED WITH FIRE blends the realities of social justice and the burdens of working for justice and peace with a hopeful spirituality, all brewed in the cauldron of the 1960s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. The book is for the young, who dream dreams of a more just world, and for their elders, who have grown bone weary fighting the good fight for justice and peace.
Community organizers, social service workers, political activists, and parish social justice ministers will find here a sympathetic spirit. The author is himself a social service practitioner, who can deal both with the intracacies of social analysis as well as with a sprituality of coping, hoping, surviving, and even flourishing amidst often discouraging conditions and bureaucratic red tape. Adopting a four-fold "pastoral circle" as his conceptual tool, Kammer offers a solid, practical, and pastoral primer for those seeking to build a more humane and just society. Readers will find here a resonant voice and a spiritual diet to nourish ans sustain them over the long haul.
