Can a justice system that doesn t protect the poor be considered truly just? We have all heard the phrase, You have the right to an attorney. But did you know this is only true for those being "accused" of a crime in our country, not their" victims"? Without a legal advocate, innocent victims are left to fend for themselves.
The church is called to do justice and love mercy. We are given the example of the Good Samaritan serving a victim in need, no matter the stigmas attached. But how are we to do this amidst the complexities of the current system?
Bruce Strom left a successful legal career to start Administer Justice, a nonprofit organization providing free legal care to our most vulnerable neighbors. "Gospel Justice" calls churches across the nation to transform lives by serving both the spiritual and legal needs of the poor through participation in the Gospel Justice Initiative. It is not only a book for lawyers or pastors, though. Bruce Strom is calling each of us, the whole body of Christ, to join the cause of legal justice for the oppressed."
