The term "social justice" seems to be ever-present. Church leaders speak it, community organizers employ it, university professors and students bat it about, social activists regularly appeal to social justice, and the term is often used in global governance and United Nations circles. Where did the phrase come from, and what does it mean and imply? In broadcast 23 of Forcing Change Radio we play excerpts from a recent lecture given in Minneapolis on the topic of social justice. Based in part on the September 2010 edition of Forcing Change magazine, this presentation explores definitions, its practical usage, the historical context, how it fits into today's culture, and Biblical concerns and responses.
