Journeys to Justice turns to the wisdom of an older generation of Christian activists from all across Canada, in order to inspire a direction and model for future faith-based action for social and ecological justice. Written by Joe Gunn, a long-time leader within the Canadian justice ecumenical milieu, and current Executive Director of Citizens for Public Justice, the book is a thoughtful and inspiring reflection based on interviews with key Canadians from several ecumenical backgrounds.

These are people who have served as active models of social justice struggles across the nation over the years. While their witness, and that of many Christians, have contributed to the ending of apartheid, the partial cancellation of debts to poor countries, and the engagement in reconciliation and solidarity with Indigenous people, challenges remain: poverty, in Canada alone, continues to deprive families of abundant life, and achieving climate justice in a world addicted to oil appears daunting. This book evaluates ‘what works’ from varied perspectives in every era, as well as to know where we have been in order to discern how to proceed.

This line of thinking then, is especially important now, since the call to justice is arguably greater today than it has been in the past. With the inclusion of a chapter reflection by a Millennial Christian activist on the wisdom of an older generation of Christian activists, this book can inform and inspire a newer generation of faith-based public justice activists today.
