This Lent book is about justice, an ideal which keeps people moving roughly in the same direction. It may be derived from belief in God, or from a reasoned or intuitive perception of the way things might be in an ideal world. Today there is widespread agreement only on the fact that there is no clear consensus about morality in our society. Where there is any absolute justice is now an open question. The author begins his book by asking whether there is any absolute justice. He follows this by looking at Hebrew and Christian understandings of justice. The third and fourth chapters consider the implications of different types of justice for society and for individuals. The final chapter asks what kind of people we must be if we are ever to climb the mountain whose summit may be justice.
