Ambassadors of Reconciliation Volume 1

New Testament Reflections on Restorative Justice and Peacemaking
$13.49
($16.00)
St. Paul called on followers of Christ to be "ambassadors of reconciliation." In reflections on this and other New Testaments texts, Ched Myers and Elaine Enns offer a lens for re-reading the entire biblical tradition as a resource for the cause of "restorative justice" and peacemaking.

The term "restorative justice" refers to a social movement that seeks to repair interpersonal, communal, and social injuries without recourse to violence or retribution. From its origins in the criminal justice arena restorative justice has been applied in schools, homes, and in the workplace. But examples such as the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of South Africa also show its application on a national level. In this volume (a second will focus on stories of restorative justice in action) Myers and Enns offer biblical and theological resources for this vital and growing movement.
