Review Wytsma is one of the new breed of evangelical Christians returning to scripture to redeem justice as a central tenet of faith. He infuses his writing with fresh experiences from working with the millennial generation...This accessible guide provides trustworthy scriptural analysis...and a solid philosophy for understanding justice in today's society. "Justice cannot be divorced from God's heart and purposes," he writes. Wytsma is engaging, encouraging, and invitational. His humor helps the reader recognize her own humanity and transformative potential. (from Publishers Weekly)
