"The purpose of this Little Book is to identify some characteristic features of the Bible's teaching on justice. "The Bible has had a profound impact on the development of Western culture. So exploring biblical perspectives on justice can help us appreciate some of the convictions and values that have helped shape Western political and judicial thought. "Christians also regard the Bible as a uniquely important source of guidance on matters of belief and practice. What the Bible has to say about justice, therefore -- both social justice and criminal justice -- ought to be of great significance for Christian thought and action today. "Yet coming to grips with biblical teaching on justice is by no means easy." Upfront, Marshall addresses the many complexities that surround "justice" in the Bible: the Bible seems to hold conflicting points of view; there is a huge amount of data to deal with; the world of the Bible and our present world are vastly different. Marshall's honest treatment of this subject is direct, yet almost lyrical in tone. He manages a thorny, multi-faceted subject clearly and ultimately singles out the broad areas of theological agreement among the Bible's writers. Highly stimulating. Highly inspirational.

By bringing together the insights of ecclesial ethics, an approach that emphasizes the distinctive nature of the church as the community that forms its mind and character after its reading of Scripture, with the theory and practice of restorative justice, a way of conceiving justice-making that emerged from the Mennonite-Anabaptist tradition, this book shows why a theological account of the theory and practice of restorative justice is fruitful for articulating and clarifying the witness of the church, especially when faced with conflict or wrongdoing. This can help extend the church's imagination as to how it might better become God's community of restoration as it reflects on the ways in which the justice of God is taking shape in its own community. “How does an ecclesial context shape the theological apprehension and praxis of justice?” This question orientates the book. In particular, it asks how, in view of its members having been admitted into God's restoring justice in Christ, the church might embody in the world this same justice of restoring right relationships. While Christian reflection on the nature of justice has tended to favour a judicial and retributive conception of justice, it will be argued that the biblical understanding of the justice of God is best understood as a saving, liberating, and restorative justice. It is this restorative conception that ought to guide the community that reads Scripture so that it might be embodied in life.

The Key Texts of Peace Studies are a collection of articles of special relevance for the current debate on concepts like development, security, nonviolent conflict transformation, and different ways of thinking peace. To give those literarily and politically precious texts a platform, from which they can be thought and discussed anew under current conditions, is one of the concerns of this volume.

Back cover: Band 7 bezieht die Realität in Palästina/Israel auf die Vision des Paulus vom Zusammenleben der Juden und Völker in der Gemeinschaft des Messias Jesus. Luther deutet die Unterscheidung von Gesetz und Evangelium falsch, indem sie ihn zu Feindbildern führt. Diese sind heute wiederbelebt, was aus muslimischer Sicht verworfen wird. Zwei jüdische Beiträge kritisieren den Missbrauch des christlich-jüdischen Dialogs zur Legitimation des Staates Israel aus der Sicht der Propheten und der Bekennenden Kirche. Ein dritter zeigt, wie der Westen die Völkerrechtsbrüche Israels ermöglicht. Was heißt das theologisch und politisch für uns? Darüber erhoffen die AutorInnen eine öffentliche Debatte.
