Synopsis: An eminent Christian philosopher’s thought on the relation between love and justice The concepts of love and justice have long been prominent in the moral culture of the West, yet they are often considered to be hopelessly at odds with one another. In this book acclaimed Christian philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff shows that justice and love are indeed perfectly compatible, and he argues that the commonly perceived tension between them reveals something faulty in our understanding of each. True benevolent love, he says, is always attentive to justice, and love that wreaks injustice can only ever be “malformed love.” Charitably engaging alternative views, Wolterstorff’s Justice in Love is a welcome companion and follow-up volume to his magnificent Justice: Rights and Wrongs (Princeton, 2010). profound new paths of philosophical inquiry. As opposed to his expansive discussion of justice in that earlier work, this book focuses in profound new ways on the relation between justice and love. “Nicholas Wolterstorff’s Justice: Rights and Wrongs is a magisterial book. In it and in its smaller forthcoming companion volume Justice and Love, Wolterstorff has gotten justice right. This, in case the thrust of my terse comment wasn’t plain enough, is very high praise.” — Miroslav Volf in Books and Culture
Love and justice have long been prominent themes in the moral culture of the West, yet they are often considered to be almost hopelessly at odds with each other. In this book acclaimed Christian philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff shows that justice and love are perfectly compatible at heart, and he argues that the commonly perceived tension between them reveals something faulty in our understanding of each.
This paperback publication adds a new preface and Scripture index to the original hardcover edition. Building upon Wolterstorff’s expansive discussion of justice in his earlier Justice: Rights and Wrongs and charitably engaging alternate views, this book focuses in profound ways on the complex yet ultimately harmonious relation between justice and love.
