Go ahead and chalk up another home run for Tim Keller. Generous Justice is a book about social justice, argued from a Christian perspective, and amazingly written with equal parts intellect, accessibility, challenge, and balance. The hard part about this book will be applying it, but Keller argues (and I believe convincingly) that we are called to carry out social justice for the poor and marginalized because Jesus has changed us and made us new. Keller carefully balances his writing so that it is neither Republican, nor Democrat, neither triumphalistic, nor apathetic, but balanced and biblical. When I start reading a Keller book, I honestly get a bit covetous of his ability to write so well about such important subjects. He’s just great. I highly recommend this book.
