“A Shalom Sista is a woman who loves people, follows the Prince of Peace, and never gives up her sass.“
Rachel Held EvansAuthor of Searching for Sunday and A Year of Biblical Womanhood
What a timely read! It’s so rare to find a book that is this theologically rich and carefully crafted yet rooted in the messy, churned-up earth of everyday life. A clarion call to justice, peace, and good-old-fashioned laughter, Shalom Sistas will leave you changed. It’s a book I can recommend to friends across the political and cultural spectrum—not because it’s safe but because it is profoundly, prophetically true.

Thank you Osheta Moore for capturing the joyful challenge of being a peacemaker in such a tangible way! Shalom Sistas will shake up your conceptions of what it means to follow Jesus while painting a beautiful, raw picture of living in the Kingdom.

Osheta is that rare leader who is stanchly alongside instead of ahead. She is the best sort of friend for this journey: funny, warm, welcoming, challenging, wise, strong, and real. She is deeply connected to her family and to her community and to the world and to Jesus but she’s her own person, too - quirky and intentional, self-deprecating and soulful. I love everything she writes.

“Osheta Moore writes about shalom in the same voice she uses when she calls up a girlfriend from the carpool line. I want to put my phone on speaker and chat with her all day.”
Drew G. I. Hartauthor of Trouble I’ve Seen and assistant professor of theology at Messiah College
“Shalom Sistas reorients our daily Christian practice toward God’s dream of shalom. Osheta Moore is thoughtful and down-to-earth, and thankfully, the God she speaks about looks and sounds like Jesus. In an age of despair and violence, this storied manifesto is a necessary encouragement.”
Gail Song BantumExecutive Pastor, Quest Church (Seattle, WA)
"In a world often wrought with unrest, Shalom Sistas offers a compelling way forward, calling the reader to consider what it means to live as peacemakers and not merely peacekeepers."

“I can’t remember a book I’ve waited for with more anticipation than Osheta Moore’s Shalom Sistas. Her writing and teaching have revolutionized my life, and her approach to the active, engaged, and vital work of peacemaking has the potential to change our world.”
Shannan MartinAuthor of Falling Free: Rescued from the life I always wanted
"Only Osheta could land these powerful soul truths with such humor and grace. This hopeful manifesto is guaranteed to move you – to action, to peace, and ultimately toward the weird way of Jesus..."
Kurt Willemspastor of Pangea Church and podcaster at Theology Curator
“Osheta Moore reminds us all that peacemaking happens in the ordinary spaces of life. Read this book, if you dare, but beware: you might just become convinced that shalom seeking is for regular folks in regular places.”
