Justice has become a rallying cry for many Christians today. And for good reason: justice is at the heart of the kingdom of God, as the Bible makes abundantly clear. Yet when our eyes are opened to the many injustices of today s world, it s easy to feel overwhelmed. Where is a person to start? And more fundamentally, what is the nature of the justice we ought to be pursuing?
In this second issue, we explore how to build the justice that Jesus and the Hebrew prophets call for not as a vague ideal, but as a way of life.
Bold, hope-filled, and down-to-earth, "Plough Quarterly" features thought-provoking articles, commentary, interviews, short fiction, book reviews, poetry and artwork to inspire everyday faith and action. Each issue brings together essential voices from many traditions to give you fresh insights on a core theme such as peacemaking, biblical justice, children and family, building community, man and woman, nature and the environment, nonviolence, or simple living. Starting from the conviction that the teachings and example of Jesus can transform and renew our world, it aims to apply them to all aspects of life, seeking common ground with all people of goodwill regardless of creed."
