Social Justice vs. Biblical Justice: New Book Available

Social justice has become all the rage, in more ways than one.

As we watch the riots in the United States, the impact of BLM and Antifa in our country and other places, it is vital to understand the ideology driving these movements.

Many in the church are confused. Many Christians and church leaders are becoming “woke” without understanding that the roots of the current “social justice” movement are founded in the ideology of Critical Theory.

Social Justice is not biblical justiceIf you are concerned about injustice, or simply want to understand the chaos and violence, Scott Allen’s new book Why Social Justice Is Not Biblical Justice: An Urgent Appeal to Fellow Christians in a Time of Social Crisis is a must read.

This book will prepare you to defend the truth against the greatest worldview threat of our generation.

Rise of a new worldview

In recent years, a set of ideas rooted in postmodernism and neo-Marxist critical theory have merged into a comprehensive worldview. Labeled “social justice” by its advocates, it has radically redefined the popular understanding of justice. It purports to value equality and diversity and to champion the cause of the oppressed.

Yet far too many Christians have little knowledge of this ideology, and consequently don’t see the danger. Many evangelical leaders confuse ideological social justice with biblical justice. Of course, justice is a deeply biblical idea, but this new ideology is far from biblical.

It is imperative that Christ-followers, tasked with blessing their nations, wake up to the danger, and carefully discern the difference between biblical justice and its destructive counterfeit.

This book aims to replace confusion with clarity by laying the counterfeit worldview and the biblical worldview side-by-side and showing how significantly they differ in their core presuppositions. It challenges Christians to not merely denounce the false worldview, but offer a better alternative—the incomparable biblical worldview, which shapes cultures marked by genuine justice, mercy, forgiveness, social harmony, and human dignity.
