Adv Today: I Am Not A Social Activist

activistI recently wrote a review of Ron Sider’s, I Am Not a Social Activist, for Adventist Today. Here’s an excerpt:

What do you call someone who advocates for gender equality, environmental conservation and economic justice? Sider’s answer: not a social activist but a disciple of Jesus. That is, given one qualification: “Jesus’ gospel–his death, resurrection, and agenda–must remain at the center of any faithful Christian social action…. Social action without Jesus’ resurrection has no power. Social action without Jesus, true God and true man, at the center is not Christian” (p. 23-24).
