Grounding Our Passion for Justice in Deeply Rooted Faith Justice requires perseverance--a deep perseverance we can't muster on our own. The world's needs are staggering and even the most passion-driven reactions, strategies, and good intentions can falter. But we serve a God who never falters, who sees the needs, hears the cries, and gives strength--through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit--to his people. Offering a comprehensive biblical theology of justice drawn from the whole story of Scripture, this book invites us to know more intimately the God who loves justice and calls us to give our lives to seek the flourishing of others. The authors explore stories of injustice around the globe today and spur Christians to root their passion for justice in the persevering hope of Christ. They also offer practices that can further form us into people who join God's work of setting things right in the world. Now in paper with an added reader's more

Back cover copy

Christianity Today Book Award Winner Includes a new reader's guide "This is a deep, wide, wise contribution to a truly comprehensive Christian understanding of justice. I can't imagine a better biblical and theological introduction to the topic of justice, combined with pastoral wisdom and the urgency that comes from direct engagement with the brokenness of our world." --Andy Crouch, executive editor, Christianity Today; author of Playing God: Redeeming the Gift of Power "I suspect that The Justice Calling will become one of those books I turn to again and again. Its message is grounded not only in a few key biblical texts but in the full story of God's people from Genesis to Revelation. As one seeking to live justly in places of deep brokenness and violent conflict, I am grateful for the thread that stitches this whole book together: the possibility and promise of persevering hope." --Lynne Hybels, advocate for global engagement, Willow Creek Community Church "A resource for the church that is theologically rich, biblically faithful, and practically engaging. I'm genuinely inspired by this book and pray that it will encourage, challenge, and inspire others not only to the work of justice but also to the God of justice." --Eugene Cho, senior pastor, Quest Church; founder, One Day's Wages; author of Overrated: Are We More in Love with the Idea of Changing the World Than Actually Changing the World? "There is so much joy to be found as we follow God into the work of justice, so much strength to be gained in the Scriptures given to us. The Justice Calling takes us deep into all these gifts. As we face the giants of injustice in the season ahead, this is a book I'd urge every follower of Jesus to dig into and carry close at hand." --Gary A. Haugen, president and CEO, International Justice Mission; author of The Locust Effect "This book calls people from the comfort of their own homes into the terrifying realities of those dispossessed and violently used. . . . The Justice Calling [is] essential reading for those who are beginning the journey of considering how justice is integral to the life of following Jesus." --Brian Bantum, Christian Centuryshow more
