Pursuing Justice by Ken Wytsma

The only way to true happiness is by giving of ourselves rather than constantly thinking about ourselves. In Pursuing Justice, Wystma extends the challenge for us to do more for the community in which we live and less for ourselves.

Whether we realize it or not - we’re already giving our lives away, but to what? Meaningless things in this world or to the things that matter to God and benefit other people? Wystma talks about finding true joy through serving others.

Pursuing Justice is filled with ideas on how to serve and includes inspirational examples of people who have found their place in service. It’s not at all a ‘how-to’ manual on being a “perfect Christian”. It will make you think and become more aware of what injustices are happening around you.

 Although the book is written from a faith-based perspective, non-believers will recognize the power of giving to others to prevent apathy and self-centeredness. Pursuing Justice is incredibly well researched - and the amount of info covered can feel overwhelming - yet it's not heavy on complicated theology which will appeal to both Christians and non-Christians.
