Abstract:

Can the Old Testament provide relevant principles for modern concepts of social justice? Today, citing our human rights is used as justification for anything and everything; excessive use has corrupted a defining ideal of mankind. Williamson explores the meaning of Old Testament justice to discover its significance for us today. Concentrating on social justice, he unearths the value and relevance of the phrase justice and righteousness. Tracing this phrase and its context within and without the pages of Scripture, Williamson elaborates an argument that passes from Abraham to Amos.
