Leaving Washington, DC and returning to her home in Atlanta, she rose to the executive suite where her teams were awarded the internet product of the year award two years in a row for the first internet based e-mail system. It was then that she got the idea in her head that she ought to be doing more to make the world a better place. So she left the corporate world and went to seminary to search for answers and become a pastor.

Today she wakes up every morning and asks the Spirit what love mischief they will accomplish together that day. She finds joy in working for peace and social justice, caring for the poor and the oppressed, embracing human diversity and equality, questioning religious tradition and culture (including and especially Christianity), and living as a good steward of the earth.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Dismantling Injustice: A Disorderly Parable of the Song of Solomon by April Love-Fordham is an engaging and fascinating book that makes the voices of everyday characters audible. It reveals how the threads of racism that plagued Congressman Caleb Morgan, the main character in the book in his early years, still continue to exist in America. The author brilliantly and seamlessly weaves together the story of Caleb Morgan along with the story from the Song of Solomon. This will make readers look at the scriptures from a modern perspective and is a good combination of biblical studies, Christian ethics, and spiritual development. The author's words reiterate the power and presence of God and speak about the one tool that can heal everyone; God's love.

Dismantling Injustice by April Love-Fordham has a lot to offer readers in terms of stories and instructions that will draw them closer to God. This is the story of everyday people and shows the spiritual truths found in the Song of Solomon. The spiritual discipline will help readers open up to God and experience a complete relationship with God. Caleb's words will also make readers think about their own spirituality and assess their relationship with God. This modern-day story with biblical commentary is a good way for readers to understand the Scriptures and Bible stories in an interesting and different way. The book is not only about good messages but also about encouraging readers to ponder their connection with God. The instructions of spiritual practice at the end of every section are helpful to draw readers closer to God.
