Informing the Future: Social Justice in the New Testament
The roots of social justice run deep -- right back to the Bible. Now, in Informing the Future, scripture scholar, writer and teacher Joseph A. Grassi takes readers back to the New Testament to explore the place of social justice -- the just distribution of economic, social and cultural resources to all people -- as envisioned and practiced in its pages. It is there, the author demonstrates, that we will find the inspiration that challenges us, sustains us and brings hope to our world today. Book jacket.
