Product description


"Moore, a podcaster and advocate, debuts with a passionate memoir and guidebook to living that is drawn from her experiences as a minister and activist. In 2005 Moore was doing community development work in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina forced her to relocate to Boston. After losing all of her possessions, she had a spiritual reawakening and decided to forge a new identity as a "shalom sista" a peacemaker grounded in love, not fear. For herself and other followers of Christ who seek peace on Earth, Moore presents a 12-part manifesto that advocates choosing subversive joy, serving before speaking, and telling better stories. She explains how to deepen everyday spirituality through stories of her own life as a black minister and podcaster married to a white minister and raising their three children; through revisiting her blogged essays; and through Bible stories applied to contemporary political situations. With sass, common sense, humor, and wisdom, Moore embraces mothering and sistering, provides recipes, and decries racism. Through all these diverse threads, the book doesn't become unwieldy. Fans of Elizabeth Cunningham, Anne Lamott, and Nadia Bolz-Weber will be delighted with this new, exciting voice."-- "Reviews"

"A clarion call to justice, peace, and good old-fashioned laughter, Shalom Sistas will leave you changed. It's a book I can recommend to friends across the political and cultural spectrum--not because it is safe but because it is profoundly, prophetically true."--Rachel Held Evans "Reviews"

"All the jazz hands for this book! Shalom Sistas is the book we all need right now. Osheta Moore will make you laugh, challenge you, and offer you a practical path to peacemaking. You will want to be her friend and show up at her house for red beans and rice."--Melanie Dale "Reviews"

"Don't even think about using a highlighter as you read Shalom Sistas. You'll end up with entire pages colored in neon yellow! Instead, sit down with a cup of coffee, an open heart, and a box of tissues. Osheta Moore writes with conviction and humor about God's invitation to be a peacemaker."--Kathy Khang "Reviews"

"Filled with real stories and tangible practices, Shalom Sistas will challenge, encourage, and strengthen readers to respond to God's call and bravely engage in the beautiful kingdom work of peacemaking."--Kathy Escobar "Reviews"

"Gloriously filled to the brim with Osheta Moore's wit, wisdom, courage, and beautiful honesty, Shalom Sistas challenges and propels me toward a joy-infused life of peacemaking for years to come."--Jerusalem Greer "Reviews"

"God calls us beyond the surface kinds of friendships we've gotten used to and invites us into the richness of deeply meaningful relationships. Shalom Sistas extends the invitation once again, because clearly, God is not giving up on us."--Deidra Riggs "Reviews"

"I am so grateful for Osheta Moore's sassy voice, calling forth the Shalom Sistas of our generation. She invites us to practice ordinary acts of peace. She's my kind of woman, and I love her book."--Idelette McVicker "Reviews"

"I can't remember a book I've waited for with more anticipation than Osheta Moore's Shalom Sistas. Her writing and teaching have revolutionized my life, and her approach to the active, engaged, and vital work of peacemaking has the potential to change our world."--Megan Tietz "Reviews"

"In a world often wrought with unrest, Shalom Sistas offers a compelling way forward. A must-read for all who are determined to find and create life-giving spaces in the midst of chaos!"--Gail Song Bantum "Reviews"
