Praying for Justice: A Lectionary of Christian Concern
God is greater than any politician, political system, or nation. And now is the time for people of faith to act in tangible, costly, and courageous ways. The more than fourteen hundred Bible passages quotations that we have included are virtually all penned by people of the Christian faith, who have spent their lives thinking about, working for, and telling others about a God whom they believe to be radically on the side of the weak, vulnerable, and marginalized. This book invites us to use each dayƒ??s verse as a meditation or reflection for that day and each weekƒ??s quotation as an examination of the ways in which your life images Godƒ??s redemptive justice in the world. This book is also a call to action. Christians must not content themselves with mere social media activism or personal piety. Christians must act often. Christians must act publicly. Christians must act sacrificially. Christians must act with courage and compassion. Christians must act as if it mattersƒ??because it does.
