Touchstones for Preaching

Special Touchstones: Preaching Justice

Richard J. Clifford, SJ begins his approach to the theme of preaching justice by exploring a number of Biblical perspectives. First, he begins with a consideration of the popular phrase “option for the poor” (00:11). This segment is followed by an overview of justice in the Bible (09:59). He goes into more detail about the Biblical origins of justice (21:47) and the profound dimension of justice in the books by the prophets (38:13). He concludes with implications for preaching (63:55).
