Generous Justice: How God's Grace Makes Us Just

6 Reviews

Law, Justice and Power, Prose: non-fiction, Religion & beliefs, Christian life & practice

From the author of THE REASON FOR GOD Timothy Keller returns with his most provocative and illuminating message yet.

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 Keller 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 a book 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.

Timothy Keller

Timothy and Kathy Keller grew up at opposite ends of Pennsylvania, but met in the middle through Kathy's sister, who was studying at Bucknell University along with Tim. They dimly heard of each other's doings as leaders of their respective Christian fellowship groups, but it wasn't until they both attended Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary that they grew to be friends, then soul mates; they got married at the beginning of their final semester. Tim's first church was West Hopewell Presbyterian Church, in Virginia, where their three sons were born. After nine years in Hopewell, a degree at Westminster Theological Seminary and a stint as associate professor of preaching there, the Kellers moved to Manhattan in 1989 to start Redeemer Presbyterian Church.
