This is the second of two volumes exploring a theology and practice of faith-rooted restorative justice and peacemaking. Volume 1 looks at four key New Testament texts that together represent a theological foundation for this work. Our interpretations there are conducted in conversation with the life and witness of Martin Luther King, Jr., our greatest North American apostle of nonviolence. Volume 2, in turn, analyses the contemporary terrain of restorative justice and peacemaking in North America (part 1), and profiles the exemplary work of nine practitioners who are incarnating the scriptural vision in real life contexts of profound violence and injustice (part 2).
