Holy Troublemakers and Unconventional Saints is an illustrated children’s storybook featuring the stories of people of diverse faiths who worked for more love and justice in their corner of the world, even when that meant rocking the religious boat. These are people from different religions and time periods who spoke truth to power and did the right thing, even when it was the hard thing. These are not perfect people, but they are people we can glimpse the holy through.


This book is illustrated with a variety of artistic styles (more than two dozen artists created original portraits). Holy Troublemakers & Unconventional Saints emphasizes the stories of women, LGBTQ people, people of color, Indigenous people, and others too often written out of religious narratives. The book is written for middle grade age children (and their adults) ages 8 and up.
