Author Biography

Jim Martin is the vice president of church mobilization for International justice Mission, where he works to move churches to a deeper level of understanding of God's heart for justice and to action on behalf of the many victims of injustice around the world. His life's work-pursued in many ministry leadership roles throughout his career-is to lead Christians into lives of deeper trust that God is good, that he provides for those he loves, and that he longs for his children to be openhanded with what has so freely been given to them.
