Win a Copy of Everyday Justice

2009 October 27

Everyday Justice #3628Loyal blog readers – you’ve heard me talk about it, commented on my ideas in their original blog rant format, and have seen me publish my book Everyday Justice: The Global Impact of Our Daily Choices. Now it’s your chance to win a free copy! (non-loyal readers, critics, and newbies are more than welcome to enter too).

If you are unfamiliar with the book, Everyday Justice explores how our daily actions (like what we eat or wear) connect us to people around the world. These daily actions can often though support systems of injustice that cheat and oppress people. Everyday Justice gives biblical support for why seeking justice for the oppressed is a faith issue and gives practical everyday suggestions for how we can choose to subvert systems of oppression and demonstrate love to others instead.

So if you are interested in discovering more about faith and justice, or are looking for practical everyday ways you can work for justice, Everyday Justice can be a valuable resource. And I’m giving away a copy here for my blog readers. All I ask is that you leave a comment below where you tell me either one practical thing you do to seek justice or post a question you have about justice. (I’ll interact with them in later posts). Or if you really can’t think of anything to say because you have no idea what justice is all about (and so really need to read the book) – just leave your name and say “I want the book.” You have until Sunday Nov. 1 at midnight (Central) to leave a comment and the winner (based on some super scientific selection process involving my 4 year old) will be announced Monday morning.

Good luck and I look forward to reading your comments!

(and if you are interested in increasing your chances of winning, the same offer is up at everydayjustice.net)

***Update – Congrats to Elisha Murrell the winner!

    I try to be very aware of my purchases of new thins and food- do I know where and how it was manufactured? Do I want to support the brand and the store selling it? For me, this is a day-to-day way I can support justice.

    As an aside, I’m our (mega)church’s librarian, so books I win end up on the shelves, available to thousands of people. I love adding books about social justice to raise awareness.

    Julie, I’d love to get a copy for my daughter (about to go to college and an avid reader) because God has given her a heart for justice. This sounds like her heartbeat. I’d love a copy too but let’s not be greedy. Thanks for writing on what God is passionate about!

    Hi Julie,

    Long time reader, first time commenter…

    I was linked to this contest through the blog for ReNew VBS, the newest product from sparkhouse. (Thanks for your sparkhouse shout-out a few weeks ago, btw!) I’ve had the pleasure of working with the sparkhouse team on ReNew VBS this fall, and it’s been an eye-opening experience for me. Just realizing, for example, how many supplies and decorations that we usually have to buy for “special programs” like VBS (or end up having to pitch once we’re done with them)– and realizing how many of these things can be found, reused, or repurposed.

    The book sounds fascinating– can’t wait to read it!

      I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.

    We are reading food labels carefully. We try to buy produce that has been grown in our area, to reduce transportation emissions. Living in the northwest we pay special attention to seafood–where is it from and is it harvested in a sustainable way.
    Thanks for the contest!

    Majamas is another popular designer of nursing sleepwear,
    whose super-soft fabric is a great comfort option. I believe that
    certain people and situations are placed in our lives to help us grow and heal; when someone or something causes us to feel
    pain, we gain insight over a “sore spot” within ourselves that needs to
    be addressed. If kids want a picture book
    that is great; just don.
