Review:

Steve has drawn from his own richly lived tapestry of spirituality and activism to give us a gift that can soothe, inspire, gently provoke or lead us to contemplation. Be the Change will be at my side for years to come. --Charlie Clements, president and CEO, Unitarian Universalist Service Committee

Steven Shick has given activists, trouble-makers, and prophetic freedom fighters a thoughtfully crafted gift. We know the best boat in a storm is one with a good keel. That's why we who are committed to creating a just and peaceful world must tend to our spiritual wellsprings. --Nick Carter, president, Andover Newton Theological School

Steve Schick's Be the Change is a rich resource for social activists who change the world because they change themselves in the process. In a varied collection of short readings, meditations and personal vignettes, Schick effectively links the spiritual and the social, love and justice. He explores many of the dilemmas faced by those who would change the world. Drawing on resources from a variety of cultures, Schick captures the essence of the linkage of spiritual growth and social change. Be the Change would be a valuable addition to any activists library. --Richard S. Gilbert, social justice coordinator, St. Lawrence District
