Hunger, Poverty and Justice (Youth Bible Study Guide)
Chip & Helen Kendall
Authentic Media £2.99 paperback, Revelation price £2.50
What do you have a right to? A roof over your head, food to eat, a fair trial? Respect, an education, quality medical attention, a vote? In our society we all have many such rights, but have you ever thought how quickly our lives would change if even one of these was taken away? Jesus had a lot of time for the poor and the whole Bible has a lot to say about justice and how we should protect the rights of the less fortunate. One of a stimulating series of study guides for young people designed to be used alongside the Authentic Youth Bible.
Generous Justice; How God’s Grace Makes Us Just
Hodder & Stoughton £9.99 paperback, Revelation price £8.99
It is commonly thought within secular society that the Bible is one of the greatest hindrances to doing justice. Isn’t it full of regressive views? Didn’t it condone slavery? Why look to that particular source for guidance on how to make a more just society? Author Timothy Keller sees it another way and explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous justice. This is a book both for believers who find the Bible a trustworthy guide and for sceptics who suspect that Christianity is a regressive influence.
Rivers of Justice: Responding to God’s Call to Righteousness Today
CWR £3.99 paperback, Revelation price £3.50
The world is in a mess; the gap between rich and poor increases. The problems that this causes are immense: starvation, lack of healthcare and education, increasing violence, civil war and global warming. What should and could the Christian response be? Within the ‘Cover to Cover’ series, this study guide explores the biblical teaching on justice. Focusing on issues such as environment, debt and consumerism, it encourages the reader to view these problems in a new light, hopefully provoking some lively and thought-provoking discussion.
