Excerpt

Excerpt from: Dorothy Day For Armchair Theologians (Armchair Theologians Series)

"Dorothy Day was more than an 'armchair' theologian

enjoying casual conversations about theology with friends

from the comfort of her easy chair. She was a theologian

with 'street cred.' Day commands respect because of her

experience living among, with, and as the marginalized. Her

awareness and knowledge of the challenges faced by people

living in poverty stemmed from and were shaped by her

relationships with them. The presumed distance of academic

objectivity does not apply to her story. She did more

than think and talk about her faith; she embodied it. She did

more than challenge the failures of the Christian church or

surrounding local community to address the needs of people

in poverty; she created new community." --from the introduction
