It is commonly thought in secular society that the Bible is one of the great hindrances to doing justice. Isn't it full of regressive views? Didn't it condone slavery? Why look to the Bible for guidance on how to have a more just society? But Timothy Keller, pastor of New York City's Redeemer Presbyterian Church sees it another way. In Generous Justice, Keller explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice. Here is an audiobook for believers who find the Bible a trustworthy guide as well as those who suspect that Christianity is a regressive influence on the world. Keller's church, founded in the eighties with fewer than one hundred congregant, is now exponentially larger. More that five thousand people regularly attend Sunday services, and another twenty-five thousand download Keller's sermons each week. A recent profile in New York magazine described his typical sermon as "a mix of biblical scholarship, pop culture, and whatever might have caught his eye in The New York Review of Books or on Salon.com that week." In short, Timothy Keller speaks a language that many thousand people yearn to comprehend. In Generous Justice, he offers them a new understanding of modern justice and human rights.

"Many Christians today struggle between a traditional view of social justice as the work of God--or the propaganda of liberals--and the recent rise of social gospel. Enter Timothy Keller's biblical treatment of the subject, read by Tom Parks. Keller offers biblical support for the necessity of being concerned with social justice, which he sees as being rooted in the cross of Christ. Parks delivers the book with the gravity that the struggle for social justice ought to be in all of our lives. Listeners will find themselves wanting to do more for those in need as well as looking to Christ for the strength to engage in the battle. T.D. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
