The author draws parallels between the restorative and biblical conceptions of justice. Restorative justice is focused on repairing the damage done during a crime, includes a wide range of emotion, and emphasizes that every action affects another a person. Biblical concepts of justice are similar, including restitution and the total well-being of the community.
