Ronald Sider has some eye opening facts about the scale of the injustice, the inadequate response of the church, and the weight of the Biblical mandate for social justice. It should shame us and change us.
Well researched and clearly presented in both theology and sociology, this is the first port of call for anyone who has noticed how often injustice comes up in their Bible.
If you're like most of us, you could go to your kitchen or look at the logos on your clothing, and you'd quite possibly find that you've been adding to the profits of a company that oppresses people who are already poorer than we in the West can imagine. *WE* are the bad guys. *WE* are guilty of the crimes the Old Testament prophets protested about.
"You that trample on the needy, and bring to ruin the poor of the land... buying the poor for silver and the needy for a pair of sandals." (Amos)
As Christians, we need to repent not only our individual sins, but the sins of the society to which we belong.
This book points out many (not all) of the issues, but more importantly, suggests some ways we can begin to put our faith into practice by addressing those issues.
This is the third time I've tried to read this book. The previous two times I have read a bit, been very challenged at my lifestyle, prayed, made some changes, read some more and given up because it made me uncomfortable.
