To Do Justice or Batmans Guide to Crime and Detection

To Do Justice: A Guide For Progressive Christians

Author: Rebecca Todd Peters

Encouraging Christians to call for public policies to benefit those most vulnerable in our nation, To Do Justice offers tools for studying complex domestic social problems and serves as a guidebook to becoming involved in social action. Rooted in Christian tradition, each essay analyzes a contemporary problem from social, biblical, and theological perspectives before providing directions for public policy.

These engaged ethicists from across the mainline denominations provide concrete examples of how progressive-minded Christians can work for justice in response to these moral dilemmas. With discussion questions in each chapter, it is an excellent resource for classrooms-both in colleges and in churches.
