When John M. Perkins was writing his classic book, Let Justice Roll Downin 1976, H. Spees was a young justice advocate living among the poor in Mississippi as a member of Perkins' Mendenhall Ministries. Thirty-seven years later, John Perkins and H. Spees are collaborating once again to write the crowning legacy of Perkins' life. Through his ministry, Perkins has focused on the "Three Rs" of justice. In Justice Rising, Perkins and Spees will show how these core values of justice are on display in the life of Jesus. The incarnationof Jesus was a relocationfrom heaven to earth in order to live among us. Through the crucifixion, Jesus accomplished the reconciliationof sinful humanity to a holy God. And by His resurrection, Jesus initiated the redistributionof the gifts and the power of the Holy Spirit throughout the world.
