A few that I have enjoyed lately…
Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson
An inside look at the brokenness of the juvenile and adult justice system – the far reaches of our justice system – told by an attorney who has spent his career learning, advocating, and defending.
Seven by Jen Hatmaker
This Austin pastor’s wife went on a year long fast of sorts – choosing seven areas of her family’s life to fast, for a month each. Food, clothes, possessions, media, stress, etc. It was a funny, challenging, and encouraging read about our perspective and what we CAN do.
Theirs is the Kingdom by Bob Lupton
Lupton’s 30 years of living in inner city Atlanta provides a unique perspective on how “neighboring” challenges us to look at the Kingdom and at our own faith in new ways.
The Good News about Injustice by Gary Haugen
This is a phenomenal work by the founder of International Justice Mission. His honest look at injustice and the way that the church is called to respond is thorough, challenging, and compelling. I plan to read it again soon.
Kingdom Calling by Amy Sherman
Sherman’s book deals with the topic of vocational stewardship as it relates to justice. My favorite part of the book is the first few chapters, where she does a great job of laying out “the gospel of the Kindgom” in a whole new way.
