Editorial Reviews

Review

"Clawson's purpose is not to shame but to inform. She does not condemn, but asks readers to question whether our life choices are congruent with our professions of faith. She has managed to couple frankness with empathy, confrontation with humility. Repeatedly she acknowledges how insurmountable the problems appear and how overwhelming the prospect of doing anything corrective can feel. She urges readers not to panic, but to remember that the world doesn't rest on our shoulders." (Martha Thomsen, Christian Week, October 1, 2010)

"Clawson's informative book offers a helpful approach, and a feeling of solidarity with others on the journey." (Teresa Malcolm, National Catholic Reporter, August 6, 2010)

"Clawson gives practical advice and resources to aid readers in overcoming everyday injustices. Her research is extensive, and her insights are relevant. Her passion for this topic is contagious, and her advice is timely and essential. Clawson's remarks will inspire any consumer to live justly." (Church Libraries, Spring 2010)

A valuable introductory resource for those of us trying to weave justice-making into our daily lives. (Relevant, January February 2010)

A must for environmentally focused social issues collections. (James A. Cox, Wisconsin Bookwatch, January 2010)

Everyday Justice is informative and easy to read while offering a positive outlook on how to adjust our lives in order to affect the world for the better. (Peter Moore, Youth Worker Journal, January/February 2010)

I want everyone close to me to read Julie Clawson's Everyday Justice, a positive, insightful, practical look at global issues and living righteously as a consumer. (Peter Moore, Youth Worker Journal, January/February 2010)

"Julie Clawson gets it. First, she gets it that most of us suburban Americans feel overwhelmed and guilty when we hear about justice. That's why she focuses on positive, doable ways that we can improve the justice quotient of our lives. Second, she gets it that we in the 'developed world' often have an undeveloped theology and lifestyle when it comes to key issues like fair trade, modern-day slavery, fossil fuel dependence, ethical eating and buying, and debt. That's why she gently, positively and hopefully helps us get 'development' where we need it most." (Brian McLaren, author/activist (brianmclaren.net))

"Many of us live in a world of great privilege. We also live in a culture of gluttony, and this includes our access to information, words and ideas. With the onset of technology and social media, my fear is that many of us will elevate our words and ideas--and be content and satisfied with that as our action. Everyday Justice is important for two very simple reasons: Justice is on the heart of God and justice needs to be pursued and lived out every day. Julie has given the larger faith community an important but inviting challenge: Do justice every day." (Eugene Cho, pastor, Quest Church, Seattle, and executive director, One Day's Wages, http://eugenecho.com and http://onedayswages.org)

"When I was a young Christian I was told that our job was to get people to heaven. The world (like now) was a mess, so evacuating people seemed like a good idea. What if instead I had been told that our main job was to bring the kingdom of God to our planet? What if that meant doing very practical things like advocating for people who were poor, voiceless and powerless? And what if I'd been told Jesus will only return when his followers have improved the situation for those people so much that it's finally become habitable for heaven? That's what I think now. If this idea intrigues you, read this book. It provides the how-tos." (Jim Henderson, executive director, Off The Map)
