Rooted in Christian tradition, each essay analyzes a contemporary problem from social, biblical, and theological perspectives before providing directions for public policy.

Justice speaks  Nov 25, 2008

I especially bought this book because it was recommended by a pastor and friend who had been mentor for us in justice and hunger advocacy,Rev. George Johnson, ELCA. We are doing a study unit at our Lutheran church in Oak Harbor Wa and i was esp interested in the chapter relating to this.
