Good News About Injustice: 10th anniversary edition by Gary A. Haugen was published by Inter-Varsity Press in November 2009 and is our 28478th best seller. The ISBN for Good News About Injustice: 10th anniversary edition is 9781844744077.
Tenth anniversary edition.
An intense exploration of injustice and oppression around the world, and also of what God means by justice, what the Bible says about it and what Christians are called to do about it. Gary Haugen is CEO of the International Justice Mission; he has heard the awful testimonies first hand, opened up the mass graves, had dealings with the enemies of freedom – he knows his subject in genuine, personal depth. The problem of holding onto faith in a loving, compassionate, omnipotent God in the face of all he’s seen and heard is met head-on, rejecting trite and tidy answers that insult the victims and pretend to a knowledge we don't possess, but ultimately proffering Hope as the key to everything. Our God has suffered. Our God knows what it feels like. Our God lives vindicated and so will we. Alongside the obligatory discussion guide, are appendices dealing with resources, advice for those entering the Human Rights sphere and a list of ‘justice scriptures’. If you want to know just how black is the darkness into which the Light has shone (John 1:5), then this is the book that will make it plain.
This is not comfortable, but it is essential reading for us all.
Gary Haugen tells us stories we need to hear about the injustices in the world, but he also convinces us that God is at work to counter these injustices, and invites us to be part of the struggle.
I defy anybody to emerge from exposure to this book unscathed. In fact, my advice to would-be readers is 'Don't! Leave the book alone!' ... unless you are willing to be shocked, challenged, persuaded and transformed.
John Stott (from the Foreword)
A book of prophetic and vital significance. Gary Haugen has pioneered in a field where Christians should be at the forefront.
God has called us to love what he loves and despise what he despises. Gary Haugen and the International Justice Mission have taken this call seriously. They have adopted lives committed to stamping out the injustices of the world. This book has opened my heart to a greater sense of compassion for those victims caught in the grip of severe persecution, as well as given me newly directed passion to be a part of God's redemptive work surrounding human injustice. Be careful ... the contents of this book will inspire us all to take action. It will change both the reader and the world.
Dan Haseltine, Jars of Clay
Gary Haugen's splendidly written book is a time bomb. Read it prayerfully and seriously, and sooner or later the combined chemistry of his riveting presentation of both planetary injustices and the imperatives of Scripture will explode within you and catapult you out in new ways to our wounded world. I predict that reading the book and doing nothing about it will be impossible.
