Perhaps one of my favorite quotes, although it's hard to pick, there's just so many, concerning economics and consumption is,
“Instead of allowing wealth and resources to change us, we must choose to allow God to change our way of thinking about wealth and resources.”And concerning citizenship,
"Borders mess with out categories of 'us and them'; they tempt us to place others in categories that are not consistent with the fellowship we are called to in Christ. Because of borders we are more likely to think that others are less deserving of our concern, charity, and compassion" (p.54-55).This book really does have an appropriate title because it makes for a fantastic introduction to living justice--the kind of justice that the God revealed in Jesus Christ has in mind. I imagine that if an individual or a group really took this book to heart, great things would happen in them and they'd discover a glimpse of what it means to be a part of what God is doing in the world.
