A great introductory read to 8 key issues of injustice in our world today: human trafficking, unclean water, refugees, hunger, lack of education, creation degradation, HIV/AIDS, and economic inequality. Each issue is clearly explained & examined, then is followed by 5 - 6 personal stories from people fighting these injustices. It's educational & inspiring. It's a book you can't walk away from and do nothing. One of these areas will wreck you to the point of action, and hopefully, life is ...more
A great overview on various ways to get involved in social justice issues. The personal stories make this book unique and I love that it directs you to resources at the end of each chapter if you want to learn more on your own. It also encourages critical thinking on each issue with the discussion questions at the end of each chapter.
This book includes a lot of little articles about specific ways people are helping others. I didn't take the time to read it, but recognize that it could be a good resource for someone brainstorming how to make the world a better place, looking for practical organizations to get involved with.
I really liked the information and colorful pictures in this book, in addition to the personal stories. One thing that puzzled me was that I felt like the author was saying that if someone doesn't recycle or protect the earth to their best ability, they are not loving God.
A great overview of many different ministry opportunities in the highest-need areas. A fantastic resource for those interested in getting involved in social justice ministry.

I ghost wrote a chapter in this book and actually forgot about it until I saw it in Chelsea's feed. I guess I should probably read it, right? I'll give it five stars.
A good start to anyone who wants real life ways to get involved with social justice issues.

Great book. Very informative!
This book is about how social justice and the Christian faith intersect. I find it inspiring to read the case studies about all the issues I care about - unclean water, hunger, care of the environment, human trafficking - and what people are doing to help. Each chapter gives resources to "get in the action" and live out our faith. Not done with the whole book yet but love it so far.
