Product Description

Throughout the Old Testament we see God's love for the entire nation of Israel, but we also see Him reaching out to individuals--the widows, orphans, and aliens. His instructions to His people included a charge to show mercy and bring justice to the needy. In the New Testament we see this played out in Jesus' life as well. With His hands he touched the sick, the lonely, and brought healing to both body and spirit. At Pentecost, when the Spirit invaded the hearts and minds of believers it continued the legacy of God's life poured into His people, for the purpose of pouring out mercy to the lost and least of these. Like a great revolving door of grace, God has been in the business of loving, saving, and equipping His people so they can love and save others throughout the whole of Scripture.
In Generous Justice: How God's Grace Makes Us Just, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church Tim Keller, explores the connection between when believers in Christ receive grace, and how that impacts the world around them. He argues that the Bible is a trustworthy guide for living a life of justice, and denies the claims of skeptics that the Bible has been a regressive influence in the world. Sharing examples from the lives of believers around him, and giving support from the Bible, Keller outlines a hopeful manifesto for all who seek to show God's mercy to the world.

    Tim Keller offers an excellent examination regarding what Scripture teaches about the obligations of Scripture on believers to care for and seek out justice for the poor, needy and disenfranchised. In a way there was a "Radical" flavor to this, Keller style, but the message of this book was clear and well-defended. Keller can get a little heady with his philosophical arguments and the numerous authors he cites, almost to the extent that this title could use a couple reads (which wouldn't be a bad thing.)

    Timothy Keller has done it again! An excellent work that re-aligns one's sense of justice from a worldly political perspective to that centered on Christ.

    Great Book!!!! It gives both the liberal and conservative churches something to truly ponder. In North America the Christian Church has divided itself by the world's political views and allied itself, wholeheartedly, to their belief system. Timothy Keller, once again, demonstrates that to be a Christian is beyond political ideology, but an ongoing transformation into the likeness of our Saviour. This can only happen as we live practicing the same justice that He has taught us in scripture.

    Intellectual discussion of justice thru the church
    December 1, 2010
    Christy Lockstein
    Generous Justice by Timothy Keller is an intelligent and reasoned discussion on how Christians should be serving within the world today. Keller, who is a pastor of a large church in New York City, throws aside the differences between fundamentalists, who focus on teaching about God, and the progressive church, which is focused on social justice. Keller says they both have it wrong by focusing on one side and ignoring the other. By using several biblical examples, as well as contemporary anecdotes, he explains how the church is called care for the poor in radical and unexpected ways. The first century church pooled their resources and had no poor among them, Keller recognizes that today's church isn't so simple, but that doesn't allow the church to simply ignore the problems in their communities. He encourages churches to move into communities in need of help and then recruit leaders from the neighborhood to make them a part of permanent change. There are other books on this subject out there, but Keller's is the first I've read that gives real suggestions that any reader can follow. Chapter seven is a fascinating discussion on just what the word "justice" means, with three philosophical definitions and how all of them miss the mark as well. Keller's focus is that true justice for everyone can only be found in the Bible and by studying the Word of God. His writing is very cerebral and inspiring.
