Becoming A Risk-Taking, Justice-Seeking, Disciple-Making Congregation. What's more important--justice or discipleship? The answer is both . . . and the time to engage is now. In "The Just Church," Jim Martin invites you to follow the God of justice into some of the most fertile ground for discipleship there is--and to revive your own soul through renewed faith and a deeper experience of God.
Martin and International Justice Mission are on the front lines of the battle for justice in the world's darkest and most dangerous places. They've become experts not only at bringing rescue to victims of violence, sex trafficking, slavery, and oppression, but also at bringing churches into the fight through concrete actions that actually make a difference. Martin has seen firsthand the amazing things that happen--both in them and through them--when churches join the fight for justice. "The Just Church" shares tangible, accessible strategies to help your church respond to God's call to seek justice, defend the widow and orphan, and rescue the oppressed in far-off places and right in your own community. Whether you're already committed to doing justice in God's name and want to mobilize others around you or you're newly awakening to God's call, "The Just Church" is the key resource you need to see real change take place in the world, in your church . . . and in yourself. "Learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow." (Isaiah 1:17)
The American church doesn"™t primarily suffer from heresy or persecution but from inaction. Jim Martin"™s book is more than a call for Christians to practice Christianity; it"™s also a road map guiding us from apathy to action. --Richard Stearns, President of World Vision US and author of "The Hole in Our Gospel"
