On Legal Systems and Justice

Last year I did a series of blogs on racism and social/biblical justice. Those blogs prompted much dialogue, so I promised to come back to the topic. Well, here we are! IBG gets a lot of prisoner mail, and while some of it comes from serious offenders, most comes from people doing time for drug possession or other non-violent crime. So this month, I’m recommending Re-Thinking Incarceration by Dominique DuBois Gilliard. I don’t agree with everything he writes, but think the work provides valuable perspective.

We tend to use the words legal and justice interchangeably. A corporate lawyer once gave me a great lesson on why they are not the same. I was whining about a patent infringement suit that had settled in our favor but let the offenders off without having to admit theft.

Online Bible Resources

Are you able to use a digital copy of God’s Word?

International Bible Givers is assembling a list of free online Bible resources. IBG provides physical Bibles to couriers, who in turn distribute God’s Word around the world, but sometimes a physical Bible is not always necessary or practical.

We do not own or control any of these sites and as such, do not endorse these sites. We do however believe that the right online Bible resource can provide a lot of value and convenience.
