This was another one of my textbooks for a seminary course, and I would say that this book showed the steps and the importance about the way that one can take part in organizing ways to handle the issues. Also, it talked about the different type of meetings (face to face, house meetings, relational meetings, one on ones) and the ways that it makes the people who take part in them feel as if they can make a difference in the world.

Also, I would say that I would use this book in either book study

Every pastor and church leader should read this booklet. It is a very helpful and practical overview of the insights gained through years of organizing congregations by the Industrial Areas Foundation (the organization that trained President Obama in community organizing).
