Confronting injustice without compromising truth


Thaddeus J. Williams


Zondervan Academic


December 2020




261 pages


Williams raises twelve important questions about oppression, injustice, racism and other moral ailments and asks us to consider or perhaps reconsider our preconceived ideas about them, even from a Christian vantage point. The author always asks us to first of all, view each person as an image bearer of Christ and that ultimately we must refer to what the Bible says and Jesus’ teaching on the subject. 

Social justice is a byword in today’s society and Williams, as well as his twelve contributors, ask readers to rethink some common conceptions about a variety of topics such as racism, sexuality, politics, socialism and more. 

This is a very in-depth book. It is Zondervan Academic, after all, and the language and thinking is deep and not to be read quickly or simply scanned. The words used are not simple and this reader checked out many meanings in the dictionary. 


Rating (1 to 5):


Suggested Audience:

Christian adults seeking direction concerning social injustice

Christian Impact:

Reading Williams’ book with an open heart and mind may cause a revolution in considering the oppression and injustice in today’s troubled world.
