This full-colour book is about politics and faith and the values we hold. It's about human relations, social justice, peace, budgets, and environmental concerns. It's about that "Aha!" moment when we realize that maps are loaded not just with data, but with meaning and the map maker's perceptions and prejudices about what's important and what's not. Ultimately, this book is about becoming aware of how we shape and use maps and how they in turn shape us, so that we can begin to reflect on and choose the kind of world we want. Includes a four-session study guide by Wood Lake Publishing co-founder James Taylor. Participants combine research with personal experience through discussion in small groups.
