Multiply Justice

‘The greatest resource for the work of justice here and now’

Crouch Playing GodAn excellent quote on Kingdom justice from Andy Crouch‘s new book, Playing God: Redeeming the Gift of Power:

The Christian hope is not for a gradually improving world any more than it is for a fountain of youth. But Christian hope overcomes the forces of despair and decay in the midst of this world, and provides foretastes of the coming kingdom …. Hope for a life beyond this life, and a world of shalom beyond this world of injustice, is the greatest resource for the work of justice here and now. Christian hope for a world made new is not an alternative to doing justice—it is the most essential resource for it.

You’ll want to check out the excellent insights on “the dynamics of power that either can make human flourishing possible or can destroy the image of God in people.”
