From the Back Cover: Do you feel stuck in your faith?
Are you searching for purpose?
Do you desire a more authentic life?
If your faith experience has been in the Western church, you have probably missed an essential part of spiritual growth without even knowing it. For decades, the church has been focused on personal piety instead of the needs of the world around it.
But Christians have not been entrusted with the story of the Gospel to simply start building campaigns and run programs, rather we are to bring the world the message of hope and love. And to meet the needs of those we come in contact with. In Justice Calling, Palmer Chinchen offers a call to a fuller expression of following Christ.
He says our faith must be a faith of doing, not just hearing. Our gaze must shift from ourselves and our small enclave like-minded individuals to the world filled with opportunities to bring justice and mercy. We must go. To the poor, the enslaved, the lost, and the lonely. There we will find fulfillment as we live out our calling.
Are you ready to join the movement toward living with a purpose, loving authentically, and engaging in the cause of justice around the globe? In Justice Calling, you will find that not only will you bring change to the lives of those you seek to serve but in so serving you will be indelibly changed as well.
The Hebrew word, “Shalom” means peace with justice. So if we are to have peace then we have to have justice. Palmer Chinchen has done a study and feels that if we are to embrace this concept of justice then we will be changed. The book is divided into three parts: Part One: Passion Stage: The Quest For Purpose. Part Two: Authentic Faith: The Longing For Authenticity. And Part Three: Collective Faith: The Passion For Justice. Once we make our way through each part we will begin to make changes within us until we are completely changed by the end of Part Three. This will be a good thing and is something that is needed in each of our lives so that our society can change as well. This is also a book that will make a great gift to friends and family so that they can experience peace and justice as well. I recommend this book highly.
