"I am persuaded that the Church, as the steward of this gospel, holds the key to justice in our society. Either justice will come through us or it will not come at all." John Perkinss optimistic view of justice becoming a reality starts and ends with the Church. With Justice for All is Perkinss invitation to live out the gospel in a way that brings good news to the poor and liberty to the oppressed (from Luke 4:18). This invitation is extended to every racial and ethnic group to be reconciled to one another, to work together to make our land all God wants it to be. And it is a blueprinta practical strategy for the work of biblical justice in our time. In an age of changing demographics where the need to break the cycle of poverty is staring many of us in the face, Perkins offers hope through practical ministry principlesthat work. This outstanding resource includes "Reflection" questions for personal or group study as well as "Interaction" sessions for groups to participate in activities together.
