World magazine has recognized Bruce Strom, author of Gospel Justice (Moody Publishers), and his free legal clinic Administer Justice in Elgin, Ill., as the Midwest recipient of the publication's Hope Award for Effective Compassion.
"Moody Publishers is delighted to congratulate Bruce Strom and Administer Justice on this esteemed award, and to join in celebrating the tireless and fruitful contributions of Administer Justice to its community for the sake of the gospel," Moody officials said.
Nominated by World readers, Hope Award recipients are poverty-fighting, local ministries, which are explicitly Christian and dependent on donations, while offering personal and spiritual help.
World chose Strom and his ministry "because they are an example of what is being done to help the poor by providing free legal assistance."
"They're not a big operation that demands huge resources," the magazine said. "The work they do is very hard, yet simple enough that others could go and do likewise."
Administer Justice will receive $4,000 cash as a recipient of the award. In October, World readers can also vote online for Administer Justice to receive an additional $25,000 cash as the national winner of the Hope Award for Effective Compassion.
