In theory and in practice, Christians often sever spirituality from social justice. For instance, some Christians assume that spirituality refers to the "inner life" whereas social justice refers to the "outer life," perhaps further equating the former with passive Christianity and the latter with active Christianity. Employing sensitivity to the sources of the Christian tradition as well as the practice of discipleship in the real world, the contributors to this volume seek solid ground on which to build bridges between spirituality and social justice. Organized to highlight both significant conceptual and theological issues, as well as applications to various dimensions of the Christian life, these essays offer penetrating insights from different vantage points into how contemporary believers can connect spirituality and social justice.

"The book is really a protest, highlighting one aspect of the integrated Christian life: that of justice, a pressingly relevant topic at the present time...This book is a worthy contribution to an on-going debate" ANVIL Vol.25 No.2 2008--Sanford Lakoff
