Publisher's Description

     
     A biblical scholar identifies basic features of the Bible's teachings on justice, treating the subject with a direct, yet almost lyrical tone. He manages a thorny, multi-faceted subject clearly and ultimately singles out the areas of theological agreement among the Bible's writers on the subject.

     
     "The purpose of this Little Book is to identify some characteristic features of the Bible's teaching on justice. 
     
     "The Bible has had a profound impact on the development of Western culture. So exploring biblical perspectives on justice can help us appreciate some of the convictions and values that have helped shape Western political and judicial thought. "Christians also regard the Bible as a uniquely important source of guidance on matters of belief and practice. What the Bible has to say about justice, therefore -- both social justice and criminal justice -- ought to be of great significance for Christian thought and action today. 
     
     "Yet coming to grips with biblical teaching on justice is by no means easy." Upfront, Marshall addresses the many complexities that surround "justice" in the Bible: the Bible seems to hold conflicting points of view; there is a huge amount of data to deal with; the world of the Bible and our present world are vastly different. 
     
     Marshall's honest treatment of this subject is direct, yet almost lyrical in tone. He manages a thorny, multi-faceted subject clearly and ultimately singles out the broad areas of theological agreement among the Bible's writers. 
     
     Highly stimulating. 
     
     Highly inspirational.
