The Just Church
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, who is vice president of church mobilization for International Justice Mission, understands how to bring churches into the fight for justice 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.
Marti offers a practical guide on how to do justice and grow in discipleship. Learn how to carry out one of the Bible’s core commands—to seek justice—in a way that amounts to more than mere words and good intentions. In the process, you’ll discover one of the most powerful tools to grow faith and deepen discipleship. 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)
