Confronting Injustice without Compromising Truth: 12 Questions Christians Should Ask About Social Justice

God does not suggest, he commands that we do justice. Social justice is not optional for the Christian. All injustice affects others, so talking about justice that isn't social is like talking about water that isn't wet or a square with no right angles. But the Bible's call to seek justice is not a call to superficial, kneejerk activism. We are not merely commanded to execu God does not suggest, he commands that we do justice. Social justice is not optional for the Christ...

    In the last few years there are a spate of books on social justice, and a few of them written by Christians. This book by Thaddeus Williams is the best in that category so far. It is winsome, accessible, and relentlessly God-honoring. I recommend pairing this title with Cynical Theori...

    A compassionate call to care about injustice by caring for truth and everyone made in God?s image. This should be a bestseller. ...

    I have a lot of words for this book. But I?ll sum it up by sharing Dr. Williams both-sideism comparison from pages 57-58. An op-Ed written by a professor at a university called ?Why Can?t we Hate Men?? compared with the ?Hutu Ten Commandments? written by a anti-Tutsi new...

    I have been waiting for a book to come out on social justice from a Christian perspective and WOW!!--this is the message we need to hear! This book is powerful, so well-articulated, and does not pull any punches. But, again, I will repeat?this is the message we need to hear, especial...

    Christians should care about injustice. The Bible talks repeatedly about justice, and God regularly commands His people to do justice in the land. But what does that mean? And does the cultural insistence on social justice coincide with what the Bible has to say? Thaddeus Williams begi...

    This is the introduction to social justice that I have been looking for. I don?t know if you can relate to me, but I have been wildly confused by the social justice movement. In fact, so much so that I have been ready to dismiss it altogether. At times I have felt Social Justice B (e...

    In our tribalized social-media age, the loudest and most extreme voices are the ones that tend to get a hearing. But I?m thankful for the thoughtful voices that speak with wisdom to some of the most contentious issues we face today. In Confronting Injustice without Compromising Truth...

    Ultimately disappointing though for the 50 pages or so I was inclined to give it a 5 star review. The authors focus on social justice as a core of Biblical teaching struck a chord with me. The reminder that we are all image bearers of God and that this truth should govern all that we d...

    This is now the second book I can eagerly recommend on the subject of social justice (the other being Piper's Bloodlines). The title is descriptive enough to give you the flavor of the whole: this is a book that warns against truth-compromising ideologies (i.e. Critial Race The...

    The idea of justice is one that we all like to talk about (the problem being that we usually neglect to define it and often fail put it into practice). It has always been important that we both define it correctly and practice it faithfully, and this book successfully accomplishes both...

    ?The kingdoms of the world play the self-defeating game of tribalizing, retaliation, and escalation, running up body counts in the name of ?justice.? The kingdom Jesus invites us into does not play by those rules.? Quote from the book Thaddeus Williams does a wonderful job a...

    One of the most important books to read in 2021 This book, for the Christian certainly, is the defining book on a Christ-followers understanding of social justice. Not only does it have massively quotable sections, as well as great definitive arguments all while not removing the scr...

    I was part of this book launch to read a book I probably would not otherwise have read. I am glad I did read it and for the awareness this author brings to the subject. He is an Christian author and he comes from a scriptural view point. He is a professor so he speaks like one. For me,...

    Extremely helpful in navigating our current culture. As a mom and advocate for my son and others who are battered by serious mental illness, I appreciate the timely wisdom of this book. As I fight for very real justice, I don?t want to lose the gospel. Thank you for this treasure. ...

    Social justice is one of the most important topics today but also one of the least understood. This is the keyword used to signify that we care about lives and rights and yet there is so much fighting in society over these two words. What can we do to seek peace and justice amid such d...

    It's rare to find a book that provokes thought for people from all places along the political spectrum. Without being overbearing, the author brings questions to help draw the reader to consider deeply any preconceived notions about social justice and to examine if personal and co...

    When I saw this book title I was intrigued. As a pastor I want to be able to help people and in todays climate I feel that there are many who are quick to judge if our opinions do not match. So I was hoping that this book would help me navigate a space that I am trying to learn more ab...

    With the rising demand for social justice in our culture as well as a growing movement within evangelicalism, a debate has been roaring over the compatibility between social justice and biblical Christianity. A result of this clash has been churches and believers in Christ dividing bet...

    2.5 Ask my pastor: I am theologically conservative. Politically, I?m center-left. As a medical student, I believe human life begins at conception. I read this book because John Perkins wrote the foreword and as a mirror: to reflect on ways I view the world and my brothers and sist...

    You don?t have to be on social media for long to realize the fruits of much of what is called justice today often include anger, hatred, bitterness, and wrath. The modern idea of ?social justice? is typically either uncritically embraced or vilified within the church, but rarely ...

    This was a great book to provoke your thinking on what the Bible has to say about justice. I do wish it had more call to action ideas. I loved the testimonials in the book, it added depth to each chapter to tie it to a personal experience. ...

    I have to say that this book far exceeded my expectations. Professor Williams states in the preface that it took him 4 years to write the book and I could see why. This book is not only well written, but easily digestible, heartfelt, charitable, without skipping on intellectual rigor. ...

    I was first drawn to this book because I became very conflicted while studying for a degree in human services. I am for fighting social injustice. I 100 % believe discrimination and racism exist. I also think intersectionality and system theory are beneficial tools. I became conflicted...
