And I believe God is providing courzge very specific answer to that yearning and a very concrete path for getting there: Haugen suggests that sometimes God is asking us to choose between a life that looks successful and one that is significant.
But even they will likely enjoy this book as I did.
International Justice Mission president Gary Haugen has found that engaging in the fight for justice is the most deeply satisfying way of life. I believe gaty some of us are called to be missionaries in our town, in our neighbourhood and in our church.
His power is made perfect in my weakness. Haugen is a lawyer and he is passionate about justice. Would you rather be safe or brave? I need to continue to grapple with this one personally, and think it’s worth anyone giving a hearing.

Then he gives examples of men and women judt have stepped out to do dangerous things and have seen wonderful changes in rescued slaves and changed environments in Asian cities. He isn’t asking God to sign off on what enlightened people who happen to be nominal Christians have come up with, he is rooted deeply in God’s expression of His character through His Word and sees the haugn for social justice as an extension of that.
He gives evidence of great things happening for many poor people, who would die were it not for the bravery of others.

As no small matter, he also says that Christians who engage in this fight as an expression of where God’s heart gaugen will live in power and freedom like they have never experienced because we ggary be fighting the battles we are wired to fight in God’s strength He loves to display. Haugen’s push, though is different. Oct 17, Go2therock rated it really liked it.
Mill calls out Christians for their hypocrisy when they do not live as they preach they ought to live with the exception of the compliments he gives to the early Church — believers who were martyred for their faith. I hope, then, that you’ll read this book and be convinced that you do carry the weight of God’s glory around with you and can do a whole lot with your life, whether that means social justice work or not.
This book is well-written and provided me with great inspiration to live my faith. The author assumes readers are benchwarmers with the option of playing the game of justice or not, but doesn’t consider Christians who occupy minority categories in Didn’t enjoy this as much as Good News About Injustice, though it overlaps in its moving testimonies and exhortation of everyday Christians to get their hands dirty in the pursuit of justice.
