A Practical Guide to Social Justice
“I Want to Help. But the World’s Problems Seem So Big. What Can One Person Do?”
If you’re passionate about helping others—but aren’t sure where or how to focus your energy—Zealous Love offers information and ideas to help you integrate social justice into your life. The hope woven into every word of Zealous Love is this: God will move and direct you to act on your desire to love your neighbours in need, both globally and locally. Zealous Love introduces you to eight of the world’s most pressing challenges: hunger, unclean water, HIV/AIDS, creation degradation, lack of education, economic inequality, refugees, and human trafficking. But it does more than educate. It provides real, practical, do-able steps anyone can take to help make a difference.
Each of the engaging chapters features first-person contributions from people like Dave Batstone (Not for Sale), Scott Todd (Compassion International), Sean Litton (International Justice Mission), Debbie Diederich (World Vision), Shane Claiborne (The Simple Way), Wendell Berry, Marva Dawn, and many others. Each contributor saw a need and decided to do something about it. They aren’t “Super Christians.” They’re just everyday people, like you, who wanted their faith to be more than just good intentions.
