Restoring Biblical Compassion. In light of the church's debates on social justice, this significant book seeks to bring our understanding and practice of social justice into alignment with the biblical worldview and concept of compassion. Seasoned Christian thinker Darrow Miller helpfully outlines perspectives on social justice and encourages us toward personal compassionate action. All people, he says, possess God-given talents to bring hope and change to those living in both spiritual and physical poverty.
"In his new book Rethinking Social Justice: Restoring Biblical Compassion, Darrow Miller does not try to redefine 'social justice.' Instead he answers the question, 'How can we best ensure that justice supports flourishing for everyone in every area of life-economic, political, social, and so forth?' He shows us, as Christians, how to practice what we preach and 'to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with our God' from both a biblical and a real-world perspective. This is the book that I have been waiting for on justice, a must-read for all Christians." -- Hugh Whelchel, executive director, The Institute for Faith, Work and Economics
"In an era where the doing of 'justice' is more and more popular, the challenge for the church is now less about the activity of doing social justice and more about doing it well and doing it in the name of Jesus. Rethinking Social Justice is an important addition to the conversation about the effective definition and practice of social justice for the church." -- Keith Wright, president and CEO, Thrive Global, LLC
"No one explains Christian principles of poverty-fighting more clearly than Darrow Miller. . . . If you have bought into either Social Universalism or Social Darwinism, the two left and right definitions of social justice, this book will challenge you to re-think and then re-act." -- Marvin Olasky, editor in chief, World News Group
Darrow Miller is cofounder of the Disciple Nations Alliance and author of numerous books, including Discipling Nations: The Power of Truth to Transform Culture, Nurturing the Nations: Reclaiming the Dignity of Women for Building Healthy Cultures, and LifeWork: A Biblical Theology for What You Do Every Day.
