What Every Christian Needs to Know About Social Justice (Johnson)

SKU 9781952599279


At first glance, it appears that social justice and Christianity have a lot in common. They seem to share a few mutual concerns: they're both opposed to bigotry, racism, and oppression; they are mutually concerned for the needy, the afflicted, and the less fortunate within society; and they both seek to resolve conflict as they aspire after unity and peace. And with these shared concerns, it is tempting for Christians to buy into the validity of social justice. But as Jeffrey D. Johnson clearly and succinctly explains in just a few short chapters, social justice is incompatible with Christianity. Johnson takes us through the history of social justice and helps us understand its complex issues. This is a brief, to-the-point handbook every Christian should read to understand how contemporary definitions of social justice differ from what the Bible teaches about justice and how social justice seeks to destroy individual rights and the authority of the nuclear family and the conservative church.

Well-researched, clearly written, and necessarily succinct, What Every Christian Needs to Know about Social Justice will be the first book I recommend to believers who want a trustworthy introduction to that movement.

    -- Thomas Ascol


    The social justice agenda is a perverse movement that has various tentacles that impact nearly all the spheres of our modern society, including political, economic, academic, medical, athletic, and most troubling of all - the church of Jesus Christ. Due to the vast diversity and complexity of the movement, it becomes a unique challenge to explain the dangers of social justice. Jeff Johnson, in his book, What Every Christian Needs to Know about Social Justice, fulfills the calling of a Christian by contending "for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints" (Jude 3). Make no mistake about it, the social justice agenda is a devilish agenda, and Jeff Johnson explains and exposes it in his helpful book.

    - Josh Buice

    Jeff Johnson has given us a clear, doctrinally sound, historically astute, and philosophically insightful account of the development of critical theory and its manifestation in the social justice movement.

    - Tom J. Nettles


    With great precision, Jeff Johnson rightly defines and explains the origins and dangers of social justice in a way that neither overstates the problem nor understates the danger. For some time, I have longed for a book to be written that will help pastors and congregants to understand these complex issues and know how to respond biblically. That book has finally arrived!
