Meet 'Big Red the Wrestling Preacher', who ministers to one of the poorer neighborhoods in Indianapolis. 'A young man comes to me cold and I put a coat on his back. He comes to me hungry and I feed him. He can't read and I find him a tutor. That's hope. That's empowerment.' The voice of Big Red is one of 26 heard in this collection of interviews profiling ordinary people, whose extraordinary service to their communities grows out of religious faith."Voices of Faith" reveals how religious faith can motivate people to work for the betterment of their neighborhoods and communities. The voices are diverse in terms of race, age, socio-economic background, and religious denomination. Some are volunteers, while others are paid professionals. Taken together, these profiles form a compelling portrait of how and why faith translates into efforts for the public good. The focus is on five Indianapolis neighborhoods: Mapleton-Fall Creek, Martindale-Brightwood, Fountain Square, HaughvilleNNear Westside, and Near Eastside.
