In Justice Reframed: How the Cross Confronts Our Pursuit of Justice, Tina and Christopher Webb, mother and son, share their view of justice as Christian African-Americans.
People are driven by their personal views and experiences (or lack thereof) with injustice. A lack of humility often drives an unwillingness to listen to "the other". The authors focus on the heart of these debates and point out that God cares when any member of this created race of human beings feels the pain of injustice or is the perpetrator of injustice. Using this perspective as foundation, they write that since justice is the by-product of God’s care, "we can view our actions and inspect our formed opinions. Only then will we know how to discern and address any injustice around us rightly."
"The authors easily tag-team to share personal vignettes and ask thoughtful questions that are personally and culturally necessary. They cover history, civil rights, scripture, logic, emotions, triggers, oppression, consequences, injustice, and justice. Ultimately, the hope is that the reader is drawn into the heart of the matter of injustice to see justice through the lens of Scripture. This is a must-read for the church today!"
