On the Side of the Angels: Justice, Human Rights and Kingdom Mission
By Dr Joseph D’Souza & Benedict Rogers, Authentic 2007, £6.99
In the tradition of Gary Haugen and Bryant Myers, this is a clarion call to Christians to get informed and get active in speaking up for the poor and oppressed. A rich mixture of good stories (well told) and cogent biblical reflection, the authors argue that justice and human rights is a key gospel concern.
D’Souza is president of the All-India Christian Council, Rogers a human rights activist with Christian Solidarity Worldwide. Between them they have experience of advocacy on every continent and so the book is full of practical advice on how to get involved in this crucial aspect of Christian mission.
Every church should have a copy.
