Stories About Social Justice 

Edited by Stephanie Weller Hanson

$10.50

Overview

The 10 short stories in this collection for young adults put flesh and blood on issues of justice at personal and societal levels and offer in-depth material for reflecting on the meaning and practice of Christian justice.

  • Stanley, a young man with a penchant for moon- and stargazing, struggles to be known and respected by his father.
  • Stopping at a soup kitchen to take pictures for her boyfriend's photo essay, Lia is pressed into serving the soup, and her eyes are opened to a reality that can't be seen through a camera lens.
  • Lucy is someone's mother, someone's wife. To the casual observer, though, she's just a street person wandering the Mall in Washington, DC.

A companion leader's guide is also available, including suggestions for using the stories with groups.
