Description

Renowned pastor and bestselling author of the forthcoming God's Wisdom for Navigating Life Timothy Keller shares his most provocative and illuminating message yet. 

It is commonly thought in 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 the Bible for guidance on how to have a more just society? But Timothy Keller challenges these preconceived beliefs and presents the Bible as a fundamental source for promoting justice and compassion for those in need. In Generous Justice, he explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice. This book offers readers a new understanding of modern justice and human rights that will resonate with both the faithful and the skeptical.


From Publishers Weekly

Oct 18, 2010 – The pastor of New York City's Redeemer Presbyterian Church offers a persuasive plea for evangelicals to embrace social justice efforts. Keller (The Reason for God), whose evangelical credentials are well respected, is among a new breed of conservative Christians eager to break out of the straitjacket that frowns on justice work as doctrinally unsound or the work of overzealous liberals. Without ever resorting to hyperbole, Keller carefully analyzes Old and New Testament passages to make the case that God's heart for justice on behalf of widows, orphans, immigrants, and the poor is indisputable, and that an encounter with grace will inevitably lead to a desire for justice. This short manifesto goes further: Keller argues that gospel preaching that aims only to change hearts while remaining oblivious to unjust social structures will never fully succeed. Keller recommends that evangelicals partner with non-Christians in pursuit of social reform while speaking distinctively in their own religious idiom. Emergent Christians as well as others serious about their faith and eager for a balanced and authoritative voice on the subject will appreciate this book.

Convicting!

Convicting

Tim Keller can explain the truth of the gospel so well. I am often deeply convicted of my own selfishness and my blatant disregard for scripture. This always leads me to repentance and the desire to correct the way I live and the Lord always follows that with forgiveness. Thank you Pastor Keller.

Another helpful, insightful resource

I went through this with a group of guys all of whom are very blessed with resources and success. It gave us biblical and practical helps to think through our stewardship.
