Generous Justice

That was a great book.  I must admit that I started off thinking that he is really going around in circles to prove a point that would have been easier to take on directly.  What I found though was that he was not so much making a point as trying to get people to think, discuss and maybe even change.

His tying justice and righteousness to disadvantaging one's self for the advantage of the community was brilliant and his examples were very insightful.  Weaving one's life into the fabric of a society that has broken down and people are falling through the cracks was an amazing picture of what he was trying to say.

I would say that his list of notes and references at the end were almost as impressive as his discourse.

So what did everyone else think?

I'm still trying to get through the book. The one big premise--that justice is the outcome of justification--is one that I've always struggled with, not just in trying to fully understand it, but in finding a community of like-minded believers who have willingly joined the conversation and are actively seeking to be a force for justice.
