Item Description...
Overview
John Perkin's optimistic view of justice becoming a reality starts and ends with the Church. "With Justice For All" is Perkin's invitation to live out the gospel in a way that brings good news to the poor and liberty to the oppressed (from Luke 4:18). This invitation is extended to every racial and ethnic group to be reconciled to one another, to work together to make our land all God wants it to be. And it is a blueprint - a practical strategy for the work of biblical justice in our time. In an age of changing demographics where the need to break the cycle of poverty is staring many of us in the face, Perkins offers hope through practical ministry principles - that work. This outstanding resource includes "Reflection" questions for personal or group study as well as "Interaction" sessions for groups to participate in activities together.

Publishers Description
"I am persuaded that the Church, as the steward of this gospel, holds the key to justice in our society. Either justice will come through us or it will not come at all." John Perkins’s optimistic view of justice becoming a reality starts and ends with the Church. With Justice for All is Perkins’s invitation to live out the gospel in a way that brings good news to the poor and liberty to the oppressed (from Luke 4:18). This invitation is extended to every racial and ethnic group to be reconciled to one another, to work together to make our land all God wants it to be. And it is a blueprint—a practical strategy for the work of biblical justice in our time.

A Call to Action for All  Jun 3, 2009
A great book to stir people into action in their local communities to bring aobut justice for those pockets of the community that society has conveniently forgotten about. Discusses an excellent and simple concept of community development that is biblical and very practical. A great thought provoking and challenging book for those who identify with the more 'mainstream' in society.
 
Justice will roll  Feb 14, 2009
No, not Metallica, that's And Justice For All, and a great album as well. Today we are talking about the book With Justice For All by John Perkins. Before I give my review I want to thank Regal Publishing for sending the book, you guy's are great and I look forward to working with you more in the future.

The book focuses mostly on the poor and on racial reconciliation. The three R's that John pushes throughout the book are Relocation, Reconciliation and Redistribution. Here are a few quotes in the book that changned and challenged me.

Pg. 11 "Poverty is much more than a lack of money, it's a lack of options"

Pg. 48 "So if you haven't heard the message, if you haven't heard that call, don't go! Don't move, don't run, don't go in to the community, don't go into the ghetto, don't go anywhere unless you have a clear call of God. But if you have heard God's call, run!"

Pg. 64 "The natural man is more aware of his natural needs, not his spiritual needs, so that is where we had to meet him." Talking about reaching people where they are at.

Pg. 75 "Leadership developement is the kdy to the continuation and growth of a ministry...I am convinced that the key to bearing lasting fruit is not in developing programs but in developing people- leaders. I believe that developing creative leaders is both the most essential and the most difficult part of community developement. It was the heart of Jesus' strategy. It must be the center of our stragety too."

Pg. 145. "It's tempting for us to start out with a list of things to do. But that is not how the work of reconciliation begins. Before we can do the work of God, we must be the people of God- the believing fellowship, the Body of Christ. We cannot achieve Christ's mission each working alone' we must work as a Body, each one exercising his spiritual gifts as a part of the whole."

Pg. 166 "Our redistribution must involve us- our time, our energy, our gifts and our skills. If we are sharing ourselves, sharing our money will follow naturally." Talking about how to give back to other, to share of who we are."

Pg. 192 "Justice cannot be achieved by long distance."

This is a great book, very challenging, lots of enticing stories and beautiful testimonies. This book gave me hope and got me excited to keep going in the direction of doing justice.
 
Greatness  Sep 29, 2008
This book was truly a great study and "re-thinker" when regarding the effectiveness of urban ministry.
 
A Gift to the Church  Jan 11, 2008
University of Virginia theologian Charles Marsh has argued in his book The Beloved Community that this John Perkins and his CCDA are the most important extension of the civil rights movement in America today. Read With Justice for All and see why Marsh is right.
 
Dr. John M. Perkins the Living Legend  Dec 27, 2007
It is sad that there are still many who have never heard of Dr. John M. Perkins--a living man with the stature of Martin Luther King Jr. While he may not have the formal education of King, his experiential knowledge rivals that of King's. It is from this existential wisdom that Perkins writes his new book With Justice for All. Personally, I have found this book, as well as others written by Dr. Perkins, very helpful in my own endeavors serving in a poor Hispanic community. One of the attributes of this book I greatly appreciate is the way Dr. Perkin's sets forth transferable principles drawn from his own concrete practice. Anyone who is involved in community development is at a loss without this book!
