Reading Rachel Held Evan’s post on books about justice (click here for the post) has inspired me to create a reading list of booking on justice. For this post, I will mention books I have in my library.
1. The Justice Project, ed. by Brian McLaren, Elisa Padilla & Ashley Bunting Seeber
This book is a collection of essays on justice. It includes voices from all over the world and is intended to be a part of the conversation on justice, rather than the definitive work.
2. Revolution in World Missions by K.P. Yohannan
This book is the story of K.P. Yohannan’s journey from a remote Indian village to founding the organization, Gospel for Asia. The book challenges Christians to make a lifestyle change in view of those who have never heard the gospel.
3. The Hole in Our Gospel by Richard Stearns
This is the story of the corporate CEO who set aside worldly success for something more significant. In so doing, he learned that the gospel was, and is, meant to be a social revolution, beginning with us.
4. The No-Nonsense Guide to Indigenous Peoples by Lotte Hughes
This pocket book is part of the No-Nonsense series of books. The series attempts to go behind the issues, break them down for you to understand. This book does much to speak to the achievements, as well as the grief and oppression of indigenous peoples worldwide.
5. The No-Nonsense Guide to Fair Trade by David Ransom
This pocket book breaks down the idea of Fair Trade, and how it is an alternative to the predominant system of world trade. It tells the story of the people behind the things we consume.
