A Powerful, Nuanced, and Biblical View of Social Justice  March 30, 2011
by


I'll freely admit that the relationship between social justice and the gospel is not one I completely understand. It's become a hot topic the last few years, but I haven't delved much into the fray. I'm definitely no expert, and the thought of trying to critique a guy like Tim Keller on the subject is a little humorous. His newest textbook, Generous Justice, contains multiple sections of thought that caused my head to spin, but in a good way.






Generous Justice : How God's Grace Makes Us Just: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

Author of the New York Times bestseller The Reason for God and nationally renowned pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church Timothy Keller with his most provocative and illuminating message yet.

Generous Justice: How God's Grace Makes Us Just is a clear, convicting, and compelling case for the assertion that "there is a direct relationship between a person's grasp and experience of God's grace, and his or her heart for justice and the poor. It is a significant contribution to Christian theology and ethics. Kellerís clear and accessible style makes this book appropriate for any thoughtful believer, seeker, or skeptic.

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 five thousand people regularly attend Sunday services, and another twenty-five thousand download Keller's sermons each week. A recent 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.
