Generous Justice
Generous Justice: How God's Grace Makes Us Just | Timothy Keller
2 posts | 4 read | 1 reading | 3 to read
Author of the The Songs of Jesus and nationally renowned pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church Timothy Keller with his most provocative and illuminating message yet. It is commonly thought in secular society that the Bible is one of the greatest hindrances to doing justice. Isnt it full of regressive views? Didnt it condone slavery? Why look to the Bible for guidance on how to have a more just society? But Timothy Keller challenges these preconceived beliefs and presents the Bible as a fundamental source for promoting justice and compassion for those in need. In Generous Justice, he explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice. This book offers readers a new understanding of modern justice and human rights that will resonate with both the faithful and the skeptical. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This book looks at the differing definitions of justice, how the Old Testament and New Testament discuss the idea of social justice, and the tangible ways of “doing justice” for the poor and downtrodden in our society today. It is convicting and worth the read, demonstrating a wonderful Biblical calling to be generous in all ways. The liberal/conservative views were a bit overgeneralized and limiting but the overall idea was on point.

I appreciate a well written exploration of justice, and I love how clearly and urgently Keller argues for systemic and personal changes so that we can make the world truly just. It's very convicting, a super good book.
