“How is social justice compatible with the Holy Scriptures?” “How do we begin talking about justice in our congregation?” These questions, and many others, often surface in the life of congregations. Whether small or large; urban, suburban, or rural; whatever racial or ethnic demographic most represented in the congregation, the question of why churches should engage in the work of justice is challenging to answer. Through an intense reflection and study of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Holy Trinity, and the Kingdom of God, ”Justifying Justice in the Church” aims to provide churches with a Scripturally-informed, theological foundation for understanding how justice work is critical to Christian life.
