What Others Are Saying

Christine Caine

Founder, The A21 Campaign

“Justice is about discipleship, and what the world needs most is healthy people following Jesus. Jim Martin loves the local church and The Just Church is all about equipping and empowering the church to follow where Jesus leads!…”

Mark Batterson

Lead Pastor, New York Times Bestselling Author

“Jim Martin understands that following Jesus requires us to move past mere good intentions and into the rewarding adventure of seeking justice and rescue for our neighbors in desperate need.  The Just Church provides not only a convincing call to action, but it offers church communities the desperately needed handles to take next steps with clarity and conviction.  This is a must-have resource for any who have concern for the oppressed but have felt powerless to act…”

“This is the book I have been waiting for - a thoughtful and thought provoking look at how discipleship and justice work are inextricably connected.  If your heart has been broken by the news of slavery and abuse around the world, and if you have ever wondered how you can generate or participate in a sustained response to injustice, read this book!

Nothing has stretched and grown my faith like my attempts to take God’s heart for justice seriously - this book is an incredibly inspiring resource for doing just that.”

- Sara Groves, singer/songwriter
