9780814659601: When Love is not Enough: A Theo-Ethic of Justice (Theology)

Catholic Press Association Award Winner!

The Gospel call to do justice has inspired Christians to practice justice throughout the centuries. Yet popular usage associates justice with the legal system, due process, or with fair treatment in ways that are not helpful to Christian practitioners and ministers of justice. When Love Is Not Enoughaddresses the practice of justice at the dawn of the new millennium through the lens of eight dilemmas that confront Christians in their daily efforts to do justice.

After an initial description and analysis of these eight specific dilemmas that impact the Christian understanding and practice of justice, When Love Is Not Enough draws on the experience of practitioners of justice; the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures; Catholic Social Teachings; and contemporary theories of justice to develop a comprehensive approach to justice based on faith.

Chapter one introduces the dilemmas in contemporary justice that reflect a theological, eschatological, sacramental, and ethical worldview. Chapter two traces the theological framework of justice through the experience of ministers and practitioners of justice. Chapter three looks at the theological framework of justice in the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures, while chapter four examines the theological framework of justice in Catholic Social Teachings. Chapter five draws upon contemporary and classical theories of justice, showing justice as a historically evolving practice. Chapter six examines the anthropological, theological, and sacramental contexts for justice as participation in the human community. Chapter seven outlines how justice as participation in the human community is built around seven important points. The final chapter illustrates how justice as participation can sort out some just practices that respond to the eight initial dilemmas.

The Gospel call to do justice has inspired Christians to practice justice throughout the centuries.

After an initial description and analysis of these eight specific dilemmas that impact the Christian understanding and practice of justice, When Love Is Not Enough draws on the experience of practitioners of justice; the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures; Catholic Social Teachings; and contemporary theories of justice to develop a comprehensive approach to justice based on faith.

Clearly and precisely it lays out situations, theories, and practical responses to problems that few texts have done.? Catholic Studies?Elsbernd and Bieringer provide the core theological and scriptural grounding necessary for students, teachers and justice practitioners to develop an articulation of an image of God which can bring people to a conversion for justice.? Tom Garlitz St. Clarles Borromeo Pastoral Center Romeoville, Illinois?Those looking for a text for graduate students or upper-level undergraduates would do well to consider this fine work.? Theological Studies?This book takes the concept of justice and traces it through contemporary experiences, scripture, official writings, and classic theories. The book moves the question of justice forward by offering a new understanding, interpretation, and practices of justice. It is a book that could be well used by a parish discussion group to a college professor.? The Catholic Journalist
