Publisher Description

Renowned pastor and bestselling author of The Prodigal Prophet 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 sees it another way. In Generous Justice, Keller explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice. Here is a book for believers who find the Bible a trustworthy guide as well as those who suspect that Christianity is a regressive influence in the world. Keller's church, founded in the eighties with fewer than one hundred congregants, is now exponentially larger. More than six thousand people regularly attend Sunday services, and another twenty-five thousand download Keller's sermons each week. A profile in New York magazine described his typical sermon as "a mix of biblical scholarship, pop culture, and whatever might have caught his eye in The New York Review of Books or on Salon.com that week." In short, Timothy Keller speaks a language that many thousands of people yearn to comprehend. In Generous Justice, he offers them a new understanding of modern justice and human rights.

    " Another great book by Keller. Very thought provoking. Made me rethink what social justice is and God's guidance on it in the Bible. "

    " I loved this book! Keller does an incredible job of articulating how the gospel and social justice go hand in hand, and he explains not only why but how this looks in real life as well. He gives tons on scripture references and real life experiences. We can't refuse mercy to our neighbor after the mercy that has been poured on us. I've never read Keller before but now I'm a fan! "

    " Dr. Keller has a phenomenal gift & ability to explain controversial topics and help people reason through them with their heart and mind. This book illustrates the centrality of God's heart for the marginalized within the Christian faith and how it goes much deeper than a trite argument of "social justice" vs. "evangelizing." Wonderful context of the Why? and How? "

    " I'm ain't no English teacher or literature scholar, so I don't pretend to be when I rate books. This rating is based solely on the fact that this book has a brilliant and unique core idea: Justice is the responsibility of all who have experienced the grace of God. This book should spiritually challenge your attitude towards all other humans, and undoubtedly should motivate you to do justice. Tim Keller is a desperately needed voice in today's church world! "

    " Keller is fantastic, and this book is a great resource for laymen and church leader-types. He encourages the reader toward acting justly and lovingly toward the poor out of an understanding of the Lord's great grace, and as an aid toward evangelism. "

    " Pastor Keller does s fantastic job of emphasizing the church's roll in helping the poor. I subtracted a star for suggesting the state is biblically responsible or even capable of this roll as well. "

    " A deep challenge to me. I found this book to be profound and simple. Pastor Keller is right for the most part and left me with loads of questions about how to take what he has taught and make it reality in my life, my family's life and my church's life. "

    " I have mixed feelings about this book, but it gave me a lot to think about. I found I received the ideas coming from a pastor using Biblical support so much more readily than through ex-exceptional anecdotes or statistics that other books have used. "
