To Do Justice

A Guide for Progressive Christians
  • By Rebecca Todd Peters, Elizabeth L. Hinson-Hasty
Product Description
Encouraging Christians to call for public policies to benefit those most vulnerable in our nation, To Do Justice offers tools for studying complex domestic social problems (e.g., Social Security, immigration, the environment, and public education) and serves as a guidebook to becoming involved in social action. Rooted in Christian tradition, each essay analyzes a contemporary problem from social, biblical, and theological perspectives before providing directions for public policy. These engaged ethicists from across the mainline denominations provide concrete examples of how progressive-minded Christians can work for justice in response to these moral dilemmas. With discussion questions in each chapter, it is an excellent resource for classrooms-both in colleges and in churches.

Rebecca Todd Peters is coeditor of the award-winning Justice in the Making: Feminist Social Ethics and Justice in a Global Economy: Strategies for Home, Community, and World.

Elizabeth Hinson-Hasty is the coeditor of Prayers for the New Social Awakening: Inspired by the New Social Creed.

Additional contributors include Gloria Albrecht, Elizabeth M. Bounds, Miguel A. De La Torre, Gary Dorrien, Johnny B. Hill, Grace Y. Kao, Marcia Y. Riggs, Rosetta E. Ross, Darryl M. Trimiew, and Aana Marie Vigen.
