The chapter argues that ‘Christian Activism’ is love in the service of justice and that the Christian Gospel includes proclamation to the nations about obedience to God. When considering the depth and breadth of social injustice and collective evil in the world, the relationship between love and justice must be taken seriously by the Christians. The chapter references the scholarship of Allan Boesak, who is also a Christian Activist, to show the achievements of Christian activism in South Africa.
