Recent years have seen a remarkable awakening of awareness of global issues. Rising generations are passionately committed to making a difference. Today's young adults want to save the world. But it's not quite that simple. Liking Facebook pages only goes so far. As today's faith-based activists move from awareness to mobilization, we bump up against the complexities of intractable global problems. Despite our good intentions, there are limits to what any of us can accomplish. So disillusionment and compassion fatigue threaten us on one hand, while empty slacktivism derails us on the other. Tyler Wigg-Stevenson gives a perceptive analysis and critique of what we can and cannot do to change the world. As activist movements mature, we need a fundamental reorientation to the fact that we are not the center of the story. Only God can save the world, and yet we can still seek to be faithful in our pursuit of justice and peace. Wigg-Stevenson's own pilgrimage shows what a more sustainable kingdom-oriented activism might look like as we move from causes to calling, deepening our vocation as disciples and ministers of Christ. The world is not ours to save. And that's okay. Discover why.
