Wolterstorff brings some sanity to this discussion for me and his two books justice and justice in love have been formative for me I recommend them both particularly if you're interested in international work and missions For example poverty is linked Biblically to injustice and this cannot simply be ignored or swiped away Wolterstorff treats the rule of law and our love as the highest order of law with intelligence and depth

Nicholas Wolterstorff ð 7 Summary

In Love is a welcome companion and follow up volume to his magnificent Justice Rights and Wrongs Princeton Building upon his expansive discussion of justice in that earlier work and charitably engaging alternative views this book focuses in profound new ways on the complex yet ultimately harmonious  relation between justice and love. It's a great start to discussing the relation between love and justice But Wolterstorff does not really conclude with a clear argument or direction It's almost like he ends on a cliffhanger

Justice in LoveAn eminent Christian philosopher's take on justice rights wrongs and what love has to do with it all Love and  justice have long been prominent themes in the moral culture of the West yet they are often considered to be almost hopelessly at odds with one another In this book acclaimed Christian philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff shows. Clearly articulated and convincing case for understanding love as being attentive to rather than supplanting justice Argues for a NT continuity of the OT theme of God's concern for justice for the vulnerable while also defending generosity and forgiveness as acts of justice I found his categories for love benevolence care beneficence attraction etc interesting it makes me want to read CS Lewis's Four Loves and perhaps some other works In this work he fleshes out some thoughts that he left hanging in Justice Rights and Wrongs His final discussion of Romans as a defense of God's justice in his extension of justification to the Gentiles is sure to be controversial but I found myself sympathetic having read NT Wright's Justification His account of Justification as the dismissing of the charges he sees it as analogous to forgiveness on account of a person's faith in God not necessarily Christ ie Abraham though faith in Christ is faith in God is alluring but he does not venture further to explain how Christ's faithfulness ground's God's justification of sinners Though his linguistic exactness does make conventional atonement seem flawed or inconsistent like NT Wright's description of imputation his lack of a coherent alternative leaves readers unsatisfied about a matter that lies at the center of the Christian faith the salvific purpose of Jesus Christ's death and resurrectionThis book made me think a lot and challenged the way I think about Christian faith and the relationship between love and justice I'll have to have to re read it once I'm up for reading something this mentally taxing again
