This book is not only for Christians or for those interested in social justice, but it's also packed full of insights for those interested in economics. Another insightful one by Tim Keller. He's always worth reading.

"When a city perceives a church as existing strictly and only for itself and its own members, the preaching of that church will not resonate with outsiders. But if the neighbors see church members loving their city through astonishing, sacrificial deeds of compassion, they will be much more open to the church's message. Deeds of mercy should be done out of love, not simply as a means to an end of evangelism. And yet there is no better way for Christians to lay a foundation for evangelism than by doing justice." -Timothy Keller, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian in Manhattan, author
