Generous Justice: How God's Grace Makes Us Just | [Timothy Keller]

Generous Justice: How God's Grace Makes Us Just

Why would we 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, challenges these preconceived beliefs and presents the Bible as a fundamental source for promoting justice and compassion for those in need. In Generous Justice, he explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice.

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 would we 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, challenges these preconceived beliefs and presents the Bible as a fundamental source for promoting justice and compassion for those in need.

In Generous Justice, he explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice. This book offers listeners a new understanding of modern justice and human rights that will resonate with both the faithful and the skeptical.

    "A Solid Keller"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Generous Justice addresses God's injunction to care for the poor and oppressed by showing ties between those mandates and the Biblical concept of justice. If you are already familiar with Keller's work, you will recognize the theme and appreciate the references that flesh out his ideas as they are presented in this work. As to performance, I prefer when Keller presents his own material. This reading was lackluster and I found myself distracted often while listening. Still, it's a worthy listen.


    What other book might you compare Generous Justice to and why?

    This book lacks the earth shattering power of The Prodigal God but in its own quiet way, it addresses pure religion and redefines the meaning of what it is to be just.

    "A Thinker."

    As with most books of this genre, your thinking is taken to another level. For those of us who are "seekers", books by Timothy Keller are always introspective. Generous Justice makes a point of ensuring that the reader understand that service to others is an important part of living God's plan. I found myself "going back 30 seconds" many times to grasp a concept that was important to me.

    The bad part about this audible book is that the narrator, Tom Parks, speaks entirely too fast. Maybe it is just me....but, I like to think about the words being spoken and he went too fast to enable me to properly do so.

    All in all - Yes .... this book is worth the time and will enable you to understand why serving others is an important part of serving God.

    "Compelling"
    Would you listen to Generous Justice again? Why?

    Generous Justice is simultaneously convicting and liberating. It is a brilliant presentation of age old truths packaged for the modern reader.
