Publisher's Summary

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 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, sees it another way.

In Generous Justice, Keller explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice. Here is an audiobook for believers who find the Bible a trustworthy guide, as well as those who suspect that Christianity is a regressive influence in the world.

Keller's church, founded in the 80s with fewer than 100 congregants, is now exponentially larger. Over 5,000 people regularly attend Sunday services, and another 25,000 download Keller's sermons each week. A recent profile in New York Magazine described his typical sermon as 'a mix of biblical scholarship, pop culture, and whatever might have caught his eye in The New York Review of Books or on Salon.com that week.'

In short, Timothy Keller speaks a language that many thousands of people understand. In Generous Justice, he offers them a new understanding of modern justice and human rights.

Informative but lacks inspiration

I would recommend this book. It contains many useful stories of charity and lays out some great frameworks but I didn't find myself rushing to read it and was a bit dull and dry at times. I would highly recommend the last chapter though. That last chapter was excellent.

A vital topic for serious Christ-followers

A well-argued thesis amidst a sea of literature which over simplifies the topic. Keller's argument for justice being a normal part of following in Christ's footsteps is convincing. He takes seriously the rich teaching across Scripture on the topic, whilst recognising the nuanced view of riches and poverty, and the true heart of interweaving lives to repair them, without pretending that we are a replacement for Christ. I have a lot to think about, and more to act out!

Everyone Should Get This, Regardless of Faith

This book is well written, balanced, researched and sympathetic to all classes of people and faiths, while showing why Tim Keller believes the Bible provides hope and skills to deal with situations and dilemmas we all face throughout our lives. A must read and possibly a life changing decision.
