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 would we look to the Bible for guidance on how to have a more just society? But Timothy Keller, pastor of New York City’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church, 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 audiobook offers listeners a new understanding of modern justice and human rights that will resonate with both the faithful and the skeptical.

“This is the book I give to all my friends who are serious spiritual seekers or skeptics.” —Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life, on The Reason for God

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristina | 2/17/2014

    " Truly made me think. Keller is brilliant. I actually stayed up late reading his thorough footnotes... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 2/17/2014

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emilybaker | 2/2/2014

    " 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! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tyler | 1/31/2014

    " 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? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandon Holley | 1/21/2014

    " 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! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J. Alfred | 1/19/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philip Allen | 1/19/2014

    " Great journey through the bible and the justice that is the mark of a follower of Christ who has understood the grace they have received. A must read for serious Christ followers!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Todd Fernandez | 12/26/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philip Taylor | 12/5/2013

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 11/21/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Viann | 11/14/2013

    " Wish there was another category of six stars because of the profound impact this book had on our lives in terms of understanding God's economy and our responsibilities. Changed our thinking, changed our commitment, changed where we spend a lot of our time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Missy Lowrance | 10/20/2013

    " This book is changing my life. I think every Christian should read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chin Hwa | 6/7/2013

    " How the Christian message motivates us to seek justice in this world. An intellectually robust, thought-provoking, and challenging read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blake | 5/22/2013

    " Great book. Seems like there are some other great books cited in Tim's footnotes that would be worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Kibbe | 12/16/2012

    " Micky and I both enjoyed this book. Tim Keller is a thoughtful pastor, leader and writer. It is relevant to Family Promise service but to all of our living as Christians and our response to the poor, the widowed. Bryan and Janelle gave us the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Honor | 11/25/2012

    " Excellent and practical, explains so much and provides explanations on topics which seem to divide other Christians "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Davis | 10/13/2012

    " One of his best books! A great read that will probably leave you thinking about how you can better practice "generous justice" in your life... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh Dougherty | 3/26/2012

    " Tim Keller provides a thoughtful call for believers to radically serve the poor and pursue justice as they were served and made just by Christ. I've been waiting for someone to write a book like this for 5 years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lobug | 11/7/2011

    " Enjoyed it. Recommend it. Will probably read it again in the future for a refresher. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ferrell | 5/15/2011

    " This is an excellent little book--great for anyone who seeks to follow Christ or cares about justice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Geoff | 5/14/2011

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it is intensely biblical and a very convicting read. I like the way he stays in the middle without going overboard in either direction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jed | 4/20/2011

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maggie | 3/23/2011

    " I am slowly reading this book as part of my ongoing quest to really be just and to live out Micah 6:8 " ...to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God." While there are some excellent points so far I am only 2 chapters in and will add more later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Al | 3/22/2011

    " The necessary brevity in the first few chapters whets my appetite to keep reading and to do more research on this topic.
    Another well written tome by Keller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carl | 3/10/2011

    " Some of this is very helpful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 3/4/2011

    " A landmark book for Christians on how the Bible sees social justice. Challenging and insightful, I cannot recommend a book more! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grace | 2/28/2011

    " chapter 6&7 were particularly helpful to me as i have recently been having a lot of meetings in med school about health equity & diversity and was confused about pushing what i view as very gospel-minded things in a secular institution. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 2/28/2011

    " Great concepts. Lots of supporting Scripture. A little dry for my reading taste. Found myself getting bored with the book. "
