My copy of Julie Clawson’s Everyday Justice: The Global Impact of Our Daily Choices arrived yesterday and i wanted to make sure that you all knew about it as soon as possible. This is a book that I am really excited about, not just because I wrote the forward but because I think that it is one of the most important books that I have read for a long time.
In it Julie talks about how the everyday choices we make in our lives have ramification for the lives and wellbeing of people around the globe. She highlights the consequences of our food and clothing choices and both for the people that produce them and for the environment in which we live.
Everyday Justice challenges us to recognize that these decisions are an important way that we show our love for God and for our neighbours. It is a must read for all who care about God and God’s world. I will probably blog more about it in the future and would love to hear your opinions on this topic too
