Praise for Generous Justice
Keller shows us how a . . . spirit--one of generosity coupled with justice--can thoroughly alter not only a person but, ultimately, society as a whole. . . . Many gems are to be mined from Generous Justice. --The Washington Times Generous Justice is the best book I've ever read about putting Christian faith into action. . . . Were all Christians to respond to Keller's understanding of Biblically based justice, it wouldn't simply result in more social programs, food and shelter, and health care for the needy. It would result in a world defined by shalom, a comprehensive peace, a world in which human beings flourish. --Beliefnet.com This is the most biblically informed and intellectually careful (read the footnotes!) 'social justice' book I know of. Justice skeptics and justice proponents alike will learn from Generous Justice. --Kevin DeYoung, TheGospelCoalition.org A great book . . . Keller cuts through the highly charged rhetoric and presents a clear, biblical call for the church to 'do justice.' --EFCAToday.org
