Chesterton House – 111 and 115 The Knoll

Through the prophet Isaiah (1:17), God implores us to “Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.” There are at least fifty other references to social justice in the Old and New Testament. In our desire to pursue social justice in the modern world, however, our beliefs and politics often interact to produce alternative paths to justice at best, and disunity and paralysis at worst. Professor Yeo shares how his research in international relations has pushed him to think harder about social justice issues from a Biblical perspective while coming to a better understanding of political views contrary to his own.
