About this title

Synopsis:

American citizens have always been the backbone of ambitious solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. The twenty-first century has seen an unprecedented rise in generosity and a steep decline in global poverty. In The Quiet Revolution, readers are invited inside the White House to see how presidents have aided in this success by rallying Americans to serve their nation by volunteering in their local communities and around the world.

President George W. Bush’s Faith-Based and Community Initiative was a catalyst for many of these dramatic social improvements. Yet, the big story is not what happened in Washington, D.C., but rather what takes place in countless communities across the nation. There is not a social problem in America that is not being addressed by a faith-based or community group every day.

The Quiet Revolution is about championing the unsung work of ordinary volunteers spurred by faith and simple goodwill to roll up their sleeves in order to care for their neighbors in need.

About the Author:

Jay Hein is president of Sagamore Institute, a national policy think tank. He is also a distinguished senior fellow of Baylor University’s Institute for Studies of Religion and director of ISOKO, an African think tank advancing enterprise solutions to poverty. Formerly, he served as both deputy assistant to the president and director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. In addition to writing this book, he is the coauthor of The New Wisconsin Idea – Reinventing Public Compassion for the 21st Century and serves as editor-in-chief of American Outlook, a quarterly public policy journal.
