Generous Justice  by Tim Keller

6 sessions

It is commonly thought in secular society that the Bible is one of the greatest hindrances to doing justice. Isn't it full of regressive views? Didn't it condone slavery? Why look to the Bible for guidance on how to have a more just society? But Timothy Keller sees it another way. In Generous Justice, Keller explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice. Here is a book for believers who find the Bible a trustworthy guide as well as those who suspect that Christianity is a regressive influence in the world.

This book is a Multiply Wall recommendation

Messy Grace  by Caleb Kaltenbach

Sundays 6:30-8:30 PM  4 sessions

Caleb Kaltenbach was raised by LGBT parents, marched in gay pride parades as a youngster, and experienced firsthand the hatred and bitterness of some Christians toward his family. But then Caleb surprised everyone, including himself, by becoming a Christian and a pastor.

Very few issues in Christianity are as divisive as the acceptance of the LGBT community in the church. As a pastor and as a person with beloved family members living a gay lifestyle, Caleb had to face this issue with courage and grace.

Messy Grace shows us that Jesus' command to love your neighbor as yourself doesn't have an exception clause for a gay neighbor or for that matter, any other neighbor we might find it hard to relate to. Jesus was able to love these people and yet still hold on to His beliefs. So can you. Even when it's messy.
