Living Ecological Justice

Living Ecological Justice - book cover Wondering what on earth we’re doing? Looking for an inspiring, relevant, and practical resource on ecological justice issues?

Living Ecological Justice: A Biblical Response to the Environmental Crisis, explores a wide range of issues with writers from seven Canadian Christian traditions.

The book is organized around three themes:

  • Protecting What We Love – creation advocacy includes protecting the creation that God loves and is making whole through the Spirit’s renewing work in the world as an icon of Christ’s redeeming presence.
  • The Biblical Case for Creation Advocacy – rooted in scripture, creation advocacy unites spirituality with scientific, ecological, and political insight in both an assessment of current challenges and the revelation of hope.
  • Towards Abundant Life for All Creation: Worship, Community, and Action – creation advocacy is a manifestation of God’s work in the world.

CPJ regularly facilitates workshops on faith and creation care, using "Living Ecological Justice." Contact Karri Munn-Venn for more information.

Living Justice: A Gospel Response to Poverty

Living Justice book cover Looking for a resource to discuss, reflect, and take action on poverty in your community?

Living Justice: A Gospel Response to Poverty is a book for Christian faith communities trying to live out the justice mandate to love the stranger, the widow, and the orphan, and to seek just relations within society. It is a resource for people interested in learning more about the situation of poverty in Canada, exploring the Christian call to respond, and searching for ways to engage and create change. It includes reflections, discussion questions, activities, and prayers that will provide insight into the situation of poverty in Canada, the challenges and opportunities we face as a society, and actions that we, as Christians, can take.

Living Justice takes a fresh look at poverty with theological perspectives representative of various Christian traditions – Anglican, Evangelical, Roman Catholic, Christian Reformed, Lutheran, Mennonite, Presbyterian, and United.

CPJ regularly facilitates workshops on faith, poverty in Canada and public justice using "Living Justice." Contact Natalie Appleyard for more information.

The Advent of Justice: A Book of Meditations

The Advent of Justice By Brian J. Walsh, J. Richard Middleton, Mark Vander Vennen 
Edited by Sylvia Keesmaat

The Advent of Justice was first published in 1993 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the CJL Foundation and Citizens for Public Justice (CPJ). Responding to God's call for love, justice, and stewardship, the CJL Foundation and CPJ have been at the forefront of research and advocacy in areas such as poverty and unemployment, economics, and social justice, aboriginal rights, refugees, energy policy and the environment.

The republication of The Advent of Justice by Wipf and Stock Publishers celebrates more than 50 years of faithful witness for justice by CJL and CPJ.

In this book of reflections, four friends come together to lead us more deeply into Advent as a time of profound hope for the coming of God's good kingdom of shalom while also a time of lament and anguish in the face of injustice.
