Tiim Keller speaking on his book, Generous Justice.
In my view, this is one of the most important books anyone can read this year. This message gives a good summary of the content in 30 minutes.
I love the way he starts, pointing out how “many who are concerned about justice are not concerned about justification by faith alone; many who are concerned about justification by faith alone are not concerned about justice.”
This is something that needs to change — and, fortunately, is (slowly) changing. It is especially interesting that, as Timothy George points out in his book The Theology of the Reformers, one of Luther’s own burdens was to establish that “Christian ethics…is grounded in justification by faith alone.”
Keller shows what that means.
