American citizens have always been the backbone of ambitious solutions to the world's most pressing problems. The 21st century has seen an unprecedented rise in generosity and a steep decline in global poverty. In The Quiet Revolution, listeners are invited inside the White House to see how presidents have aided in this success by rallying Americans to serve their nation by volunteering in their local communities and around the world.

President George W. Bush's Faith-Based and Community Initiative was a catalyst for many of these dramatic social improvements. Yet, the big story is not what happened in Washington, D.C., but rather what takes place in countless communities across the nation. There is not a social problem in America that is not being addressed by a faith-based or community group every day.

The Quiet Revolution is about championing the unsung work of ordinary volunteers spurred by faith and simple goodwill to roll up their sleeves in order to care for their neighbors in need.
