BOOK: Generous Justice

What does it mean to do justice? Is justice a primary concern in the Bible? Can we separate justice and evangelism? What characteristics should make Christians unique and distinct in the world? Pastor Tim Keller answers those questions and more in a thorough explanation of Biblical justice while making the case that justice and the pursuit of justice is a primary concern of the Bible and Jesus' ministry on earth.

ARTICLE: What is Biblical Justice?

In an excerpt from Tim Keller's book, Generous Justice, he explains that biblical justice consists of two Hebrew words - mishpat (to treat people equitably) and tzadeqah (a life of right relationships) - and when those two words are brought together in today's terms it would be called social justice.

SERMON: With a Politician

Teaching from Luke 3 pastor and theologian Tim Keller says that Jesus was political and not political at the same time because Jesus' definition of power is different from the world's. True power, as interpreted by the world, consists of coercion and power over people while actual power lies in changing people from the inside and self emptying.
