The Rev. Canon Elizabeth Geitz '93 Explores Faith in Action in Acclaimed Book

GTS Alumna, the Rev. Canon Elizabeth Geitz, Class of 1993, has written her sixth book to be published by Morehouse/Church Publishing – I Am That Child:Changing Hearts and Changing the World. Regularly in the Top Ten Bestsellers on in African Studies, the book is highly recommended for both individual and church group reading. The book explores what happens when three American women put their faith into action in a developing nation. In I Am That Child, Geitz proves that cross-cultural relationships among people of faith can change our world one person at a time. She welcomes readers to join her pilgrimage to an orphanage in Cameroon, sharing both humorous and gut-wrenching wisdom from leaders and children who struggle against AIDS, global poverty and sexism. Along the way, Geitz and readers take a hard look at race and cultural privilege and find hope for reconciliation back home. The book concludes with study and resource guides to help readers engage global poverty efforts and build community across continents or across the street.
