Description

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 would we look to the Bible for guidance on how to have a more just society? But Timothy Keller, pastor of New York City's Redeemer Presbyterian Church, challenges these preconceived beliefs and presents the Bible as a fundamental source for promoting justice and compassion for those in need. In Generous Justice, he explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice. This audiobook offers listeners a new understanding of modern justice and human rights that will resonate with both the faithful and the skeptical.

"This is the book I give to all my friends who are serious spiritual seekers or skeptics." -Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life, on The Reason for God

    At this point in my life, this is the probably the most thorough explanation and best balance I have yet to find in holding evangelism and social justice in tension. It gave language, research, and examples to things I've wanted to articulate about how to do ministry holistically. It was recommended by a friend about 3 years ago. I started reading it then and it just felt dense. The language is accurate but heady and dense. I came back around to it about 2 months ago and I took my time reading it, considering the impact of the points that Keller was making and deciding whether or not I agreed.

    Keller struck a balance between theological, political and idealogical camps so well, he made it look easy, like we all should have already come to the obvious conclusion that he was drawing, which in my opinion, was that the gospel is incomplete if it lacks either evangelism and social justice. They must accompany one another and we are able to do both because God's grace has empowered to do so.

    There aren't many books I can agree with 100% but this one came to about 98% close. It's 5 stars in my book and is a great piece to add to any believers arsenal of resources. Just click the image and get it. It's worth it.

    A profound retrospective into what it means to be a Christian in relationship to the poor and oppressed.
  • (5/5)
    Very well articulated with strong Biblical/theological support, as well as apt anecdotes. Builds a strong case for what it is to live out God's heart for justice. Written in a way that is relevant for both Christians and non-Christians.
