We Cry Justice: Reading the Bible with the Poor People’s Campaign

We Cry Justice

Edited by Liz Theoharis. The author is joined by pastors, community organizers, scholars, low-wage workers, lay leaders, and people in poverty to interpret sacred stories about the poor seeking healing, equity, and freedom. Organized into fifty-two chapters, each focusing on a key Scripture passage such as the story of the exodus that frees people from debt and slavery, the prophets who denounce the rich and ruling classes, the stories of Jesus’s healing and parables about fair wages, and the early church’s sharing of goods. Each chapter ends with reflection questions and a short prayer offering the opportunity to use the book devotionally throughout the year. Read more.
