Many of us have questions like these. We are well-intended, but stuck in the rut of the everyday. We want to make our lives matter. But we don't know where to start. We wonder about everything from whether to give a dollar to a beggar to how to participate in the political process; from whether to shop at Wal-Mart to how much to spend on a car.
Kevin Blue has spent his adult life answering these questions for himself and for others. He lives in the heart of Los Angeles, where these questions can't be set aside. And he has led college students through experiences in urban ministry as well as international treks to the poorest parts of the world. In Practical Justice, he combines what he has learned with the experiences of others to answer your questions.
Right thinking. Right action. Just living. God calls us to step up and get involved with the poor and needy. This book will help you get started.

"Kevin Blue has written a book that is both prophetic and practical. If he had simply chosen to be either prophetic or practical this would have been a much easier book to read. As it stands, it is not an 'easy read' at all. And for that I am deeply thankful."
"Kevin Blue invites us to journey into the world of the oppressed and view reality from the underside. With sensitivity and candor he confronts us with injustices--both blatant and veiled--and offers redemptive and practical responses for those who would seek to practice biblical justice."
"There have been many books written on urban ministry and on Christian justice. Most have been written by academicians or by missiologists. But Practical Justice is written from the vantage point of the streets, from toughs (and the vulnerable) 'hanging' with each other, and from the poverty and powerlessness of the homeless. Kevin Blue has been in street-level urban ministry most of his adult life. And through that ministry, he has come to a profound understanding of the ways both people and systems oppress, exploit and dominate the weak and vulnerable among them. In Practical Justice Kevin shares that understanding, fills it with biblical insight and proposes concrete ways you and I can work for the shalom of our cities."
