Reconciliation in the Christian Tradition

Show Summary Details


This chapter provides a justification for the ethic of political reconciliation from the Christian tradition. It seeks to show how the Christian tradition provides a grounding for the concepts of reconciliation, justice, peace, and mercy that the previous chapters set forth. For these tasks, it turns both to an analysis of language as found in the New Testament and an analysis of God's response to evil as found in the Christian tradition.

Keywords: justification; peace; mercy; reconciliation; righteousness
