The Justice Project

Hi friends,

Hope you're enjoying some vacation-time this summer. Susanne and I are...and we know Lon is!
Here I go again - suggesting more resources for our conversation! Last time, I think it was "An Emergent Manifesto of Hope" edited by Doug Pagitt and Tony Jones.

Now comes a companion piece entitled "The Justice Project" edited by Brian McClaren, Elisa Padilla and Ashley Bunting Seeber. Like "Emergent Manifesto" this is a series of essays, but this time they are cries for justice from across the world. If the Emergent Manifesto was about renewal in theology and worship and community, this book is about renewal in our attention to the justice issues which permeate the Bible and yet are often so neglected.

Check it our at the Emersion Books site above. Some other good stuff there as well. Blessings on the rest of your summer!

Yeah, I'm really impressed -- especially with the breadth of authorship of the various essays.Sometimes the emergent conversation is accused of being a bunch of white guys talking to each other. This book puts the lie to that!
