When Justice is the Measure


The Salvation Army - Salvationist.ca - When Justice is the MeasureYou haven’t met Jesus until you’ve met him as a man of compassionate justice. When Justice is the Measure encourages those who follow Jesus to include the excluded, challenge cultural norms, confront corruption and advocate for those who are oppressed. Though injustice denies it, God intends human life to flourish. And God calls us to join the mission.

In a world where so many people are marginalized, the issues of justice seem to be an alien concept or at best a convenient political sound bite. This book offers a refreshing, challenging perspective on social justice.
— General André Cox, international leader of The Salvation Army

The authors remind us of the intricate relationship between imago Dei, humanity and justice. This is a must-read for individuals who want to engage and respond to the call of divine justice through a global lens, in an honest, relevant and impactful way.
— Dr. Ndunge Kiiti, professor of international development and director, Center for Faith, Justice and Global Engagement, Houghton College, New York

Clear and compelling biblical insights that reflect God’s heart for all people. If you want to help build a more just and peaceful world, this is a powerful resource.
— Dr. Geoff Tunnicliffe, chief executive officer/secretary general, World Evangelical Alliance
