Possible: A Blueprint for Changing How We Change the World

Possible is the next BIG move in the justice genre. Stephan Bauman provides a radical and significant step in our thinking about Biblical justice in providing a paradigm for practical hope. Possible is intelligent, viscerally engaging and eminently practical—a book that belongs to a shortlist of truly great evangelical literature! Bauman helps those of us who truly care and are pursuing justice to live with hope and vision—thank you for this great gift to the global Church.
