This book records and celebrates that ministry, detailing his work with various agencies that examine the impact of prevailing unjust systems on those who suffer under them, including injured workers, first nations peoples, war veterans and their families.
At the heart of John’s work are relationship and connection. He contrasts this with the orthodox view that sees humanity as essentially competitive and self-interested.
John calls on the church and church community service agencies to heed the Word of God and be in the forefront of calls for justice. He argues that those who are marginalised in today’s society embody the suffering of Christ and that they must be heard.
The book gives us an opportunity to revisit the big questions that underpin our work and our faith. It asks us to take time to consider if what we are doing does indeed bring about more justice into the world. – From the Preface by Paul Linossier, Uniting Victoria and Tasmania.
