Confronting Injustice Without Compromising Truth: 12 Questions Christians Should Ask About Social Justice
(Zondervan Academic, 2020)

WHO: Thaddeus J. Williams, associate professor of systematic theology at Talbot School of Theology.

HE SAYS: “If we, as a culture and as a church, can’t have the hard conversations about enduring questions, then it is unlikely we will rise above the self-righteousness of our political tribes.”

THE BIG IDEA: We must be discerning if we are to truly execute justice as Scripture commands.

THE PROGRESSION:
Part 1, “Jehovah or Jezebel?” asks three questions about worship to help readers better seek justice without losing sight of the godhead of God. Part 2, “Unity or Uproar?” asks three questions about community that will help readers seek justice without becoming bitter.
In “Sinners or Systems?” asks three questions about salvation to help readers seek justice without losing the gospel. Part 4, “Truth or Tribe Thinking,’ asks three questions about knowledge to help readers seek justice without sacrificing truth.

“There is simply no worldview-neutral way to think about or act out justice.”
