Full Product Description
‘Pursuing Justice’ answers the life-long question many ask – “how can I experience true happiness and abundant life” – with an unexpected answer. By dropping your dreams and pursuing justice.
Ken Wytsma uses his twenty years of global ministry and travel to give a compelling and highly theological argument to those seeking their Christian purpose. As we become more and more concerned with our own business we lose sight of the Gospel, which should be leading us to the hungry, the orphans, and the needy.
Ken will call readers back to the biblical understanding of justice, offer you a glimpse of true righteousness and reconnect you to the Gospel and the joy of God. In discovering anew the true meaning of the Gospel – to lay down your life – you will find it again, only it will even better. When we discover God isn’t concerned with our personal pity, our perspectives turn upside down.
Learn how to love a Micah life: to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with God.
Pursuing Justice by Ken Wytsma was published by Thomas Nelson in February 2013 and is our 280th best seller. The ISBN for Pursuing Justice is 9780849964664.

Got a question? No problem! Just click here to ask us about Pursuing Justice.
We try to make our lives better by chasing our own dreams, but that only makes the problem worse. Instead, the path to a just life thats satisfying and permeated with meaning leads us alongside the orphan, the widow, and the powerless.
Using clear evangelical theology and compelling narratives drawn from two decades of global ministry and travel, Ken Wytsma, the founder of The Justice Conference, shows Gods unchanging love for all His children. On the way, the author calls us back to a proper understanding of biblical justice, a redeeming glimpse into the true meaning of righteousness and the remarkable connection between our own joy, the joy of others, and the wondrous Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Pursuing Justice shows that God isnt primarily concerned with personal piety but about empowering His children to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with their creator. The message is as hopeful as it is fresh: when you discover anew the meaning of the Gospel and give your life away, you will find it... and it will be the best life you can imagine.
