Editorial Reviews

"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
