Where is social justice in the Gospel? Where is social justice in the Singapore Church? These are the two main questions this book seeks to explore. Through the recount of the author’s journey of discovering social justice in the Bible, on the streets of Singapore, in the long history of the Singapore and global Church, a survey of local Christians and interviews with Christian justice-seekers and pastors, this book challenges the Singapore Church, as God’s Kingdom community, to reclaim biblical social justice as an integral facet of living the Gospel and manifesting God’s Kingdom.
