Bible and Justice : Ancient Texts, Modern Challenges Paperback
Part of the BibleWorld series
The Bible contains a variety of passages that defend the poor and champion the cause of the oppressed, but are these ancient texts able to find a voice in confronting injustice in the modern world? 'Bible and Justice' examines the ways in which the Bible can speak to contemporary poverty, environmental issues, and state-sponsored violence, whilst exploring the difficulties that arise when ancient concepts of justice are applied to modern ideals.
The book covers a range of topics from human rights to deaf biblical interpretation and from hospitality to corporate globalization.
Broad and accessible, 'Bible and Justice' will be an invaluable resource for students of religious and biblical studies.
