A Christian Justice for the Common Good

$15.99
($19.99)
$13.49
($19.99)

Christians bring a unique, scriptural understanding of social justice to bear on the ills of society.

The Christian understanding of the common good is much richer than a matter of “fairness.” The priorities of human rights and due process are necessary for fashioning a just world, but Christianity calls the church beyond fairness to forms of liberation, compassion, mercy, and peace that are even more radical than the best of twenty-first century justice. These are the characteristics that are key to faithful living in the real-life zones that include those who live in white, middle-class zip codes as well as those whose addresses are in an urban inner city.  Discover the skills and competencies that must be cultivated for successful Christian justice partnerships and learn how justice functions when viewed through a Christian lens.

Contents include:
1. The Reduction of Justice to Human Rights
2. A Christian Justice
3. The Formation of a Just Church
4. Skills of Justice
5. Doing Justice with Others
6. A Justice of the Common Good
