Chase tells some good stories as he challenges Friends to radical faithfulness, to a Spirit-based nonviolent revolution against the organized sin of our socioeconomic system. He quotes the Quaker Kabarak Call for Peace and Ecojustice, Martin Luther King, the Bible and present day religious activists. He is eloquent, engaging, well founded in Quaker faith, and persuasive.
Several special and wonderful aspects of this pamphlet include his use of M.L. King's inspiring words and history, which speak to both religious and secular people. Another aspect is his citation and explanation of the Kabarak Call from the Sixth World Conference of Friends held in Kenya in 2012. Many Friends will not know this moving statement. Another is his treatment of "fearful faithfulness," acknowledging our fears and resistance to the challenge to revolution and showing how faithful activists come through it (including M.L. King).
Chase reminds us that our embrace of the challenge to serve the beloved community is central to our Quaker faith, as we unite the inner and outer aspects of this faith.
