Roll Away the Stone cuts to the core of the Unites States
dilemma about persistent poverty and the political debate
about change. The author shows that what holds us back is
the outdated thinking of both political parties. In this very
readable book he outlines a generative way of thinking that
is responsive to the challenges of the 21st century.
the 1st edition of Roll Away the Stone was published in 1999,
the U.S. has come to the end of a political era and people
are no longer trusting old political assumptions, whether
liberal or conservative, for responding to the incredible
set of problems we now face as a nation. In this 2nd edition
the author has further honed and illustrated the concept of
generative thinking to compete with and expand the narrow
traditional political debate. While focused on poverty, generative
thinking, as described in this new edition, is easily translated
to the full range of social, political and religious challenges.
Discussion questions have been added to the end of each chapter
plus refinements for ease and enjoyment of reading.
