Description

Renowned pastor and bestselling author ofMaking Sense of GodTimothy Keller shares his most provocative and illuminating message yet. It is commonly thought in secular society that the Bible is one of the greatest hindrances to doing justice. Isn't it full of regressive views? Didn't it condone slavery? Why look to the Bible for guidance on how to have a more just society? But Timothy Keller sees it another way. In Generous Justice, Keller explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice. Here is a book for believers who find the Bible a trustworthy guide as well as those who suspect that Christianity is a regressive influence in the world. Keller's church, founded in the eighties with fewer than one hundred congregants, is now exponentially larger. More than six thousand people regularly attend Sunday services, and another twenty-five thousand download Keller's sermons each week. A profile in New York magazine described his typical sermon as "a mix of biblical scholarship, pop culture, and whatever might have caught his eye in The New York Review of Books or on Salon.com that week." In short, Timothy Keller speaks a language that many thousands of people yearn to comprehend. In Generous Justice, he offers them a new understanding of modern justice and human rights."show more

Review quote

Praise for Generous Justice "Keller shows us how a... spirit one of generosity coupled with justice can thoroughly alter not only a person but, ultimately, society as a whole.... Many gems are to be mined from Generous Justice." The Washington Times "Generous Justice is the best book I've ever read about putting Christian faith into action. . . . Were all Christians to respond to Keller's understanding of Biblically based justice, it wouldn't simply result in more social programs, food and shelter, and health care for the needy. It would result in a world defined by shalom, a comprehensive peace, a world in which human beings flourish." Beliefnet.com "This isthe most biblically informed and intellectually careful (read the footnotes!) 'social justice' book I know of. Justice skeptics and justice proponents alike will learn from Generous Justice." Kevin DeYoung, TheGospelCoalition.org "A great book . . . Keller cuts through the highly charged rhetoric and presents a clear, biblical call for the church to 'do justice.'" EFCAToday.org"show more
