The prophets, charismatic voices of judgment and hope, are rooted in the tradition yet .   Social Justice Is a Form of Worshipping God. By The book of Isaiah notes the inclusiveness of this idea when it states,“for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.

Isaiah claims: “all we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way, and the Lord has laid on Him, the.   Interpret any one text how you will, the book of Isaiah seems to say that justice is a pretty big deal with God. The experience of reading Timothy Keller’s latest offering, Generous Justice: How God’s Grace Makes Us Just, felt very similar. Keller does not manipulate the emotions with heart-rending stories or melodramatic rhetoric.

Biblical literature - Biblical literature - Isaiah: The Book of Isaiah, comprising 66 chapters, is one of the most profound theological and literarily expressive works in the Bible. Compiled over a period of about two centuries (the latter half of the 8th to the latter half of the 6th century bce), the Book of Isaiah is generally divided by scholars into two (sometimes three) major sections.
