Mark Hamilton on Justice

<ed.note>One of the benefits of Lent is the setting aside of time to meditate on just how much we’ve|I’ve screwed up in the previous year. One of the blessings of Easter is the sense that a new, hopeful year awaits for more victory, less defeat. But victory needs a goal and I can think of no better than that of a greater involvement in God’s will as it relates to believers promoting justice. Mark Hamilton’s thoughts on the topic make a fantastic springboard moving us in the direction of that goal.</ed.note>

What is justice? How can we be more just people, and a more just church? These questions seem acute in our time, as American Christians have access to unprecedented wealth and power while so many of our brothers and sisters sometimes lack even daily bread. As this new series of podcasts tries to show, the Bible offers a profound and eminently workable approach to changing our own lives — our attitudes, behaviors, values, and desires — so as to become more just people. I hope you enjoy this series and welcome your comments or questions. Dr. Mark W. Hamilton Associate Professor of Old Testament and Associate Dean ACU Graduate School of Theology Abilene, TX 79699 Editor, The Transforming Word
