How ought Christians think and talk about justice? Where does the wariness concerning talk of justice come from? Should Christians really talk about love rather than justice? Or does the New Testament present us with a more integrated understanding of the relationship between love and justice? In his lectures, Dr. Wolterstorff will examine the New Testament textual grounds for a re-thinking of our understanding of love and the integral place of justice in biblical ethics. Responses are given by Regent College's Iain Provan and Patti Towler. Lectures include:

  • Agape in Twentieth Century-Ethics
  • Agapism's Difficulties with Justice
  • Justice Within Love
