God is loving and powerful. He is able to work against some of the strongest forces of hate in the world.

You can imitate God's justice by fighting against these same powers in your own life and in the lives of those around you.

Taking a fresh look at this theme throughout Scripture in this twelve session LifeGuide® Bible Study, Bob and Carol Hunter challenge you to love justice as God does. And they show you how to work for justice in your everyday life.

This revised LifeGuide Bible Study features additional questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, together with expanded leader's notes and a "Now or Later" section in each study.

For over three decades LifeGuide Bible Studies have provided solid biblical content and raised thought-provoking questions—making for a one-of-a-kind Bible study experience for individuals and groups. This series has more than 130 titles on Old and New Testament books, character studies, and topical studies.
