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 book 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)

A Solid Keller
Generous Justice addresses God's injunction to care for the poor and oppressed by showing ties between those mandates and the Biblical concept of justice. If you are already familiar with Keller's work, you will recognize the theme and appreciate the references that flesh out his ideas as they are presented in this work. As to performance, I prefer when Keller presents his own material. This reading was lackluster and I found myself distracted often while listening. Still, it's a worthy listen.
This book lacks the earth shattering power of The Prodigal God but in its own quiet way, it addresses pure religion and redefines the meaning of what it is to be just.
