The good news about injustice is that God is against it.
God is in the business of using the unlikely to bring about justice and mercy. In Good News About Injustice, Gary Haugen offers stories of courageous Christians who have stood up for justice in the face of human trafficking, forced prostitution, racial and religious persecution, and torture. Throughout he provides concrete guidance on how ordinary Christians can rise up to seek justice throughout the world.
This landmark work, featuring newly updated statistics, is now part of the IVP Signature Collection, which features special editions of iconic books in celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of InterVarsity Press. A five-session companion Bible study is also available.
Gary A. Haugen is CEO and founder of International Justice Mission (IJM), a global human rights agency based in Washington, DC. Before founding IJM in 1997, Haugen was a human rights attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice. He is also the author of The Locust Effect, Terrify No More, and Just Courage.
"In this much-needed and timely piece of work, Gary Haugen promises to provide us with reflections on three primary concerns: 'the injustice of our world, the character of our God, and the opportunity for God's people to make a difference.' He does not disappoint."-- Fellowship
"Full of dramatic storytelling and biblical reflection, this book is a strong and level call to transformation and deliberate action in an unjust world on the part of all who claim the name of Christ."-- Touchstone
" Good News About Injustice encourages church leaders to teach God's message of justice and to unite and confront oppression wherever they can."-- World Christian
"This is an important book on a neglected topic. . . . Its insightful diagnosis of the nature of injustice and strategies against it may be its strongest point. Its biblical teaching, several success stories, and practical advice give the reader a basis for hope."-- Moody
"This book is a rich resource for theological reflection on the relationship between Christian faith and social justice. . . . Haugen's clear prose and engaging style makes the book suitable for high school youth groups, undergraduate classes in religion and ethics, and adult discussion groups."-- Sojourners
