This practical resource establishes the need for justice ministries in the congregation and community. From initiatives of care and education to programs of action and collaboration, discover the transforming impact the church can have on society, culture, and community through diverse social justice ministries.

At a time when the African American church is increasingly associated with the controversial prosperity gospel, pastors Daniel Ayers and Reginald Williams remind black church leaders of the prophetic call "to do justice." Exploring first the biblical foundations for justice work that goes beyond charity, the authors also recall the storied history of the black church's leadership in the Civil Rights Movement. From there, this practical resource establishes the contemporary need for justice ministries in the congregation and the community. From initiatives of care and education to programs of action and collaboration, discover the transforming impact the church can have on society, culture, and community through diverse social justice ministries. Features Spotlights on real-life ministries and initiatives, as well as two training manual sections, "Doing Justice" and "Our Vote."
