Tim Keller is always worth reading—even if you don’t agree with every jot or tittle. His next book, Generous Justice, comes out in October 2010, and it will look at the biblical concept of “justice.”

Here is the publisher’s description:

It is commonly thought in our secular culture that the Bible is one of the great hindrances to doing justice. In Generous Justice, Timothy Keller illuminates a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice.

Generous Justice is a book for believers who find the Bible a trustworthy guide, as well as for those who suspect that Christianity is a regressive influence in the world.

Keller calls upon life-long Christians to deepen their faith by understanding that justice for the poor and marginalized is central to the Scripture’s message and challenges skeptics to recognize that the Bible is actually the basis for the modern understanding of justice.

If you want to hear Keller lecture on biblical justice, check out the audio from Resurgence below:

Keller uses the book of Proverbs to answer four questions:

  1. What is justice according to the Bible?
  2. What is doing justice according to the Bible?
  3. Who should be doing justice?
  4. How can you be one of the people that does justice?
