Call for Justice Book Study

Our new book Call for Justice explores what it means to do justice — both in theory and practice. It is a great resource for students, churches, and groups of justice-seekers to study together.

We want to help you learn more about faith and justice, so we’ve created Call for Justice book studies. Here’s how it works:

  • You organize a group and meet independently. It’s up to you to decide how often you meet, how many sessions you’d like to do, and how discussions are organized. We’ve put together a leader guide below to help you get started.
  • AJS staff can join one of your first meetings to provide tips on holding discussions virtually and answer early questions about the book or AJS.
  • During one of your final sessions, authors Kurt Ver Beek and Nicholas Wolterstorff can join your group via video call for a time of questions and discussion.


To let us know you’re planning to lead a book study, please contact Alison Wabeke (AJS Director of Programs) at We’d be happy to answer any questions you have!

Book Study Guide

To help you get started, we’ve created book study guides to help you and a group read Call for Justice together!

  • In the leader’s guide, you’ll find tips for how to organize your group, lead discussions, and guide your group in its next steps for justice.
  • In the reader’s guide, you’ll find resources to accompany the book. This is great for anyone participating in a book study or for anyone who has read Call for Justice.
