Just Mission is as effective in making its case for political action in the local church as it is in demonstrating how to do it. It succeeds in being both tool and inspiration for action. This book itself contributes to human flourishing. Firstly you might change the world: In seeking justice you may craft a mission and purpose, devising effective practical action. And you might change yourself, coming closer in your being to the character of God.There is a lot here for us to consider and learn. -- Helen O'Brien
Just Mission is a valuable contribution to contemporary thinking about mission which deserves to be widely read, debated and acted upon. For it succeeds in bringing together several important elements in a creative and accessible manner. To begin with it is clearly theological; providing a missional perspective rooted in biblical convictions about the God of compassion, righteousness and justice. This is combined with a perceptive reading of the political changes, nationally and locally, which set the scene for justice-seeking mission. In addition Just Mission offers down to earth guidance for churches about ways in which they can make a difference in building for the kingdom of God. The end result is an inspiring example of theology which is practical, pastoral and political. -- Peter Stevenson
[Cameron] offers practical advice on how to understand what is happening and then what to do about it. In that sense her book might be what you need if your church is already embroiled in dealing with an issue for your community. But the book is also designed to help people recognise sources of injustice before too much damage has been done. -- Marion Gray * The Reader, Summer 2016, Vol 115 No2 *
