Social justice is an integrative field, taking into account the Creation mandate (to flourish and lead productive lives), the social ethic of the Old Testament (justice, fairness, goodness), Jesus' inaugural address in Luke 4:19-21, as well as contemporary theories of justice and development from the social sciences-- these theories converge where they address social problems, and inform the strategies we use to meet those needs.
