"For Christians, the biblical command to seek justice is a core element of our faith. But in a world rife with complex issues of injustice, it can be difficult to know where to begin. For those of us who are parents, teachers, or others influencing children, bringing kids along on this journey can seem even more overwhelming. That's why I'm so grateful for Lisa Van Engen's superb And Social Justice for All, which examines a broad range of justice issues in age-appropriate ways for children, teenagers, and adults, combining biblical analysis, helpful explanations of the issues, questions for discussion, and a plethora of suggestions for diving deeper. My family and I will be referring back to this resource frequently."-- (11/16/2018)
"In her debut book, Lisa Van Engen presents an educational manual that not only identifies justice issues, universal but immediate, but also offers both hope and resources to engage these life-and-death issues in our everyday living and learning. Very rarely do we find a combination of passion for the gospel so deep, commitment to justice so contagious, and language and style so accessible in one volume. A valuable resource to adults and children alike!"-- (11/12/2018)
"There's much discussion in Christian circles about whether or not we should be concerned with social justice. Lisa Van Engen lends her voice to the conversation with And Social Justice for All. Van Engen encourages us that justice is the action of a good neighbor, who is mindful of her duty to those on the other side of the globe as well as across the fence. Not just another book about the ills of this world, And Social Justice for All gives resources, custom fit to various ages, social groups, and faith communities to effect change in the world around us.

"At its core, this is a book about hope. Hope that our God cares about those to whom he gave breath, and hope that he can use us to make a difference for those who need it most."--Susan Finkbeiner, best-selling author of the Pearl Spence novels (11/12/2018)
"And Social Justice for All is a thoughtfully curated collection of resources for families, classes, and small groups. Lisa Van Engen weaves a rich tapestry of Scripture, activities, questions, and ideas to provide a valuable guide for following God in seeking justice. The stories Van Engen tells and the insights she offers provide a beautiful image of the diverse, and sometimes surprising, ways that Christ is at work in communities today."-- (11/12/2018)

Even more importantly, it gives practical ways for people of faith to get engaged. And Social Justice for All is an essential read for Christians who want to live out their faith and be the hands and feet of Christ in their neighborhood and across the globe."-- (11/12/2018)
