Overview

The forgotten face of Jesus as judge and advocate

The daughter of American missionaries, Shelley Hundley was born in Colombia, and grew up on the campus of a seminary that trained leaders to serve in what was one of the most violent nations in the world. After suffering abuse at the hands of a minister in the community, she turns from God, angry and confused that He could allow this to happen.

In A Cry for Justice, Hundley uses her story as a backdrop to show how she found healing from the pain, guilt, and shame of the abuse she endured as a child and how she came to know Jesus in a new way: as a righteous judge who fights for His people and takes upon Himself the burden of our injustices and pain.

The story of Shelley Hundley’s journey from bitter atheist to wholehearted lover of God is unique. Yet what she learned on this journey is relevant to every person who has ever been hurt and has silently wondered, “Who will fight for me? Who can make the wrong things right?”

Discover how Jesus would change your world today.

Table of Contents

Table of Contents

 

Foreword by Mike Bickle

 

Introduction

 

1 Why I Became an Atheist

 

Author’s personal testimony of the abuse she experienced in her early years from men who professed to be Christians and its effect on her spiritual state

 

 

2 Do Something About This Pain

 

Is suicide the only way out? How can I act “normal” with all this pain inside?

 

 

3 Viewing Pain and Suffering Through a New Lens

 

Discovery: All pain points us to the greatest pain—our need for and distance from God. It is essential that we learn to respond in the midst of pain and let it lead us to Jesus.

 

 

4 The Brink of Death and the Power of Prayer

 

God does not turn His back on us in our desperation but shows Himself strong on our behalf.

 

 

5 Journey Into the Love of God

 

As our heavenly Bridegroom, Jesus desires one thing from us: voluntary love for Him. Contains practical tips for growing in the love of God.

 

 

6 You Need a Judge

 

Our love for God will increase when we receive the revelation of who He is as judge, how fiercely He fights against all that hinders love, and how much He desires to right the wrongs in our lives.

 

 

7 Three Qualities of Jesus the Judge

 

The judge is our righteousness, our Bridegroom, and our comforter.

 

 

8 The God Who Fights for Us and the Power to Forgive

God keeps account of the wrongs done against us and undertakes to fight for us. He makes it possible for us to forgive—and to forget, because He never will. He also promises to exchange our ashes for beauty. Our pain counts before Him! He dignifies it by using it as a currency, a raw material that produces honor and beauty for ourselves and countless others.

 

 

9 Turn: A Vision of Jesus and Prophecy to America

 

Contains a description of a powerful vision the author had, through which God revealed that America is heading into the judgments of God unless individual believers turn to Him and devote themselves to helping others turn as well. The church as a whole must focus on God’s priorities rather than following our own agendas—the fear of the Lord and the first commandment (to love Him with all we are).

 

 

10 A Call to Friendship With God

God is looking for those who long to be His friends, those who desire to know Him intimately and to make Him known to others. It is to these that He will share His heart, His emotions, and His plans.
