Abstract:

We are well-intended, but stuck in the rut of the everyday. We want to make our lives matter. But we don't know where to start. We wonder about everything from whether to give a dollar to a beggar to how to participate in the political process; from whether to shop at Wal-Mart to how much to spend on a car. Kevin Blue has spent his adult life answering these questions for himself and for others. He lives in the heart of Los Angeles, where these questions can't be set aside. And he has led college students through experiences in urban ministry as well as international treks to the poorest parts of the world. In Practical Justice he combines what he has learned with the experiences of others to answer your questions.
