“A second critical idea that recurs throughout these pages is that of the nature of justice itself, its fundamental importance for everyone and the extent that it is, in many ways, the benchmark of human goodness. Christopher Marshall (chapter 18) reflects on these ideas in his chapter on the spirit of justice. He also discusses the parallels between restorative justice ideas and the fundamental Christian values that are central to his thinking and to that of many others within our society.” (Abstract)
