    1. The Micah Network (see micahnetwork) poignantly states, "If we ignore the world, we betray the word of God. If we ignore the word of God, we have nothing to bring to the world." And this concept of integral mission is further developed by D'Souza within these pages. He contends that seeking societal reform is requisite to the proclamation of the gospel.

    2. I'll give this book 4 stars for the subject matter and the effort. One of the authors, Dr. Joseph D'Souza, an Indian, leads the Dalit Freedom Network, so he has first hand experience of both personal and structural injustice. This book is chock full of examples. We need more evangelical advocates for justice such as he and his co- author.
