Mountains of the Moon
Stories About Social Justice
Edited by Stephanie Weller Hanson
The 10 short stories in this collection for young adults put flesh and blood on issues of justice at personal and societal levels and offer in-depth material for reflecting on the meaning and practice of Christian justice.
- Stanley, a young man with a penchant for moon- and stargazing, struggles to be known and respected by his father.
- Stopping at a soup kitchen to take pictures for her boyfriend's photo essay, Lia is pressed into serving the soup, and her eyes are opened to a reality that can't be seen through a camera lens.
- Lucy is someone's mother, someone's wife. To the casual observer, though, she's just a street person wandering the Mall in Washington, DC.
A companion leader's guide is also available, including suggestions for using the stories with groups.
