Justice books

A Listmania! list by Bruce D. Strom (Elgin, IL)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "More than 2,000 verses of the Bible cry out for justice for the poor. Currently we see evidence that the Spirit has begun to sweep across our nation and is moving the hearts of people toward this cause. Several ministries and churches are wrestling with how they can engage in active work against injustice. Many of these groups have come together and are preparing to launch a new initiative called Gospel Justice. This initiative will balance the scales of justice on behalf of the poor and needy in America by providing both free legal help and gospel hope."

  "As one of the founders of The Gospel Coalition, Dr. Keller is one of the nation's leading advocates for Biblical truth and application through teaching and practice.
