Scripture & Ministry: John Perkins

Love is the Final Fight: Justice in a Violent World

sm calendar

Dr. Perkins, born in rural Mississippi in 1930, will share an autobiographical journey of pursuing justice in a world overwhelmed by oppression & brokenness. His perseverance through the Civil Rights Movement and his voice within the Evangelical Church continue to shape how Christians understand justice, reconciliation, and a call for multi-ethnic ministry. With his vast ministry experiences in many different contexts, Dr. Perkins’ strong biblical knowledge consistently seeps through in a reinterpretation of present situations through a Gospel perspective.

 

Biography
John Perkins has written 14 books including his autobiography Let Justice Roll Down (Regal, 2012), With Justice For All (Regal, 2011), and his latest Making Neighborhoods Whole: a Handbook for Christian Community Development (IVP Books, 2013), as well as founded several ministries including the Christian Community Development Association. Everything the Dr. Perkins has done has centered around the sole purpose of supporting the mission of advancing the principles of Christian community development and racial reconciliation throughout the world. He has been recognized for his work with eleven honorary doctorates, and two universities have established John Perkins centers.
