Michael Campbell-Johnston SJ, Just Faith: A Jesuit Striving for Social Justice

'Since you suggested it, you go and do it.' With these memorable words Fr Pedro Arrupe, the remarkable Father General of the Jesuits, launched Michael Campbell-Johnston SJ, known to all as CJ, on his lifelong mission of faith and justice. Throughout his more than forty years of active ministry, much of it with and alongside refugees and the poor, he wrote an annual letter to his friends. Full of personal anecdotes and vignettes, they vividly illustrate a period of considerable change for the Roman Catholic Church and for the wider society that it serves.

This extraordinary memoir, based on these annual letters, bears witness to a life lived in the midst of social and ecclesiastical turmoil. It portrays someone serious of purpose but also an inveterate traveller, keen to discover and understand new places and people, and capable of creating a rapport with those from all stations in life, from gang leaders in El Salvador to prime ministers and presidents. But it also shows a man who spoke truth to power, whether confronting the military during the civil war in El Salvador or preaching on social justice in front of Tony Blair.

It offers a remarkable first-hand insight into many key moments in twentieth-century history, and will motivate and inspire those convinced of the power of the gospel to transform our world.
