God's Justice Bible celebrated at Houses of Parliament
The new God's Justice Bible was launched by Biblica Europe this week.
God’s Justice: The Holy Bible is a groundbreaking Bible providing commentary about how every book of the Bible speaks to God’s heart for justice.
The event in Westminster was attended by church leaders, ministries and media.
Biblica Europe executive director, Lindsey Holley, said: “When you read the Bible, God’s justice is clearly at the very heart of who He is.
"We believe that this new Bible will help readers to not only engage in a fresh way with the biblical text, but understand at an even more profound level how God’s justice can transform their lives.”
The event featured contributions from Fiona Bruce MP, Dr Chris Wright from the Langham Partnership, and Dr Krish Kandiah, founding director of Home for Good, launched.
The new publication features contributions from more than 50 scholars and theologians from all corners of the world.
Each book of the Bible includes the complete text, along with helpful book introductions, notes, and a ﬁnal page with several questions for reﬂection or conversation, plus a closing prayer.
The majority of writers from the international team behind God’s Justice are from the global south.
Speaking at the launch, Dr Kandiah said: “Justice is woven all the way through the Bible, but for many who have read it, they have missed that theme. Getting involved in justice is not a hobby.
"God’s justice permeates the whole of scripture, and it should therefore permeate the whole of us too. My hope for this Bible is that justice would once again become the passion of God’s Church.”
Fiona Bruce MP commented: “There’s guidance in this book about themes important to us as MPs in this House, themes of family, modern day slavery, international aid, and supporting children.”
The Hodder Faith edition is available now through all good Christian bookshops and online.
