Rethinking Social Justice: Restoring Biblical Compassion
From the author, Darrow Miller:
“This book was written for all who have a heart for people in poverty and who want to understand biblical insights and grow in obedience. But I have especially written for a younger generation of Christians who intuitively understand that, of all people, Christ followers should be working the hardest for social justice.You may have watched your parents’ generation focus on evangelism and church planting to the exclusion of a comprehensive gospel of the kingdom. You may have grieved to see your elders largely forget that Christians are responsible to minister to people who are poor and disenfranchised.
I grieve with you. At the same time, I’m concerned. I fear that many of your generation, in reaction to this deficit in the church and in a quest to restore balance, have unknowingly embraced a false view of compassion and social justice, a perspective unknowingly derived from the modern paradigm of the Western world.
If you have a heart for the poor and are concerned about the issue of social justice, I believe you will find this book helpful.
