Description

This course investigates a Christian spirituality of justice in which God's aim for creation is not destruction - rather, it is restoration. The difficult questions of justice and retribution are taken seriously as we wrestle with appropriate responses to injustice and sin. In our investigations, we use both theological texts and current literature written from a wide range of perspectives. Our intention is to learn from and critique such situations in light of our participation in God's restoration of creation.
