See No Stranger: A Memoir and Manifesto of Revolutionary Love, by Valerie Kaur, is a practical guide to changing the world. It is a personal story of awakening, and story about how revolutionary love is the medicine our world needs right now. As one reviewer said, “[Kaur’s guide] might be our best chance for our collective future.”  What others are saying:

This is undoubtedly one of the most transformative books I’ve ever read, challenging me to imagine a world where everyone belongs. –Rev. Traci Blackmon
A book that will change your life.—Parker J. Palmer
