Essays on Matters of Social Justice for Critical Thinkers
Imprint: Resource Publications
"Roger Ray has long been a voice crying out for progressive ideas in the conservative wilderness of the Midwest. His provocative essays ask readers to give serious thought to matters of great importance that are often overlooked in the corporate media. Advocating for civil rights, honest government, environmental wisdom, sane gun laws, and an evolutionary approach to faith, Roger explodes much of the magical thinking and indifference that has become all too common in our public discourse."
--Michael Dowd, author of Thank God for Evolution, and host of "The Future Is Calling Us to Greatness"
"Roger Ray is one of the most perceptive, insightful, and courageous parish pastors I have ever known. In this series of essays he brings together his spiritual resources with his penetrating social consciousness to illumine the issues of our day. The result is a book that is provocative, powerful, and moving."
--John Shelby Spong, Author, Biblical Literalism: A Gentile Heresy
"In this timely collection of essays, Roger Ray delivers a much-needed perspective on issues (e.g., poverty, race, gun violence, etc.) which continue to plague America. As a college instructor who teaches both critical thinking and argument, I know well the value of this engaging, thorough, and needling reader! Ray pushes us to do and be better. I look forward to incorporating his voice in our classroom conversations."
--Nicole Fisk, Associate Director of First-Year English, University of South Carolina
