Advocates for “social justice” begin with a marked advantage in the debate. Anyone who argues against them can be cast as defending injustice–and who wants to do that? But what if the call for “social justice” undermines both justice and gospel?
In his booklet, Social Justice: How Good Intentions Undermine Justice and Gospel, Dr. E. Calvin Beisner exposes the sad and unintended consequences of redistribution. He also goes to the heart of the issue: the meaning of justice itself and whether, in fact, justice requires the sort of equality Progressives claim it does.
Recently reprinted to include The Statement on Social Justice and the Gospel, this is an excellent resource to sharpen your worldview on this hot-button issue.
