Northey claims the theme of restorative justice, or the restorative justice paradigm as developed by Howard Zehr and others, is the overarching understanding of justice in both Old and New Testaments, although contradictory notions of justice and the law are worth further study. Theological books related to restorative justice are reviewed and commented upon under five main topics: the Old Testament, the New Testament, general theological works, chaplaincy, and capital punishment.
