Global Scenes of Biblical Injustice Glimpsing the Poor and Oppressed in Today's World

Synopsis

Global Scenes of Biblical Injustice Glimpsing the Poor and Oppressed in Today's World by W. R. Brookman

What kinds of experiences do we have with the poor and the oppressed around the world? What do we really know about the ins and outs of the lives of those who exist in a world of extreme poverty or oppression? Global Scenes of Biblical Injustice simplifies and synthesizes the bewildering array of research and technical data which exists regarding these issues. Through the use of colorful, informative, and thoughtful vignettes, this book paints an easily understandable picture of the true nature of what may be called biblical injustice. This thought-provoking book incorporates challenges for a Christian response regarding those whose daily plights fly in the face of what Scripture teaches about justice.
