Advocating for Justice: An Evangelical Vision for Transforming Systems and Structures
Christians are increasingly interested in justice issues. Relief and development work are important, but beyond that is a need for advocacy. This book shows how transforming systems and structures results in lasting change, providing theological rationale and strategies of action for evangelicals passionate about justice.
Each of the authors contributes both academic expertise and extensive practical experience to help readers debate, discuss, and discern more fully the call to evangelical advocacy. They also guide readers into prayerful, faithful, and wise processes of advocacy, especially in relation to addressing poverty.
Krisanne Vaillancourt Murphy, one of the book’s authors, was the former senior associate for national Catholic engagement at Bread for the World.
