Justice and Mercy in Non-Fiction

Our Shared Brokenness: This review of the best seller, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson (Spiegel and Grau, 2015), introduces the reader to the founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need.  The book takes its epigraph from Reinhold Niebuhr: “Love is the motive, but justice is the instrument.” And though Stevenson does not cite every biblical allusion, it is unmistakable that he is driven by the prophetic call to act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly before God.  Students may find the review helpful.  Profs may assign the book for course study.
