In this instructive and inspiring account, Christian ethicist CurtissDeYoung profiles three of the most dynamic and influentialreligious activists of the twentieth century: Dietrich Bonhoeffer,Malcolm X, and Aung San Suu Kyi - each from a differentgeneration, a different faith community, and a different continent.His portraits show how their mystic faith drove them to justicecommitments and beyond customary boundaries between peoplefrom other traditions, countries, and ways of life.
