Talking Social Justice

Howard Lawler

Politicians and pundits often say that we “need to have a conversation about” social justice. We need better conversations that do more than skim the surface with slogans and simplistic notions. This book provides Bible based help. It spotlights passages people neglect or pluck from context. American history lessons and the author’s urban childhood stories play supporting roles. The readings only take about five minutes each but the questions which follow promote reflection and discussion. Do not stay on the surface of scripture and social justice – go deeper.
