"Justice in the Christian Tradition"
Presenter: Dr. Charles E. Curran
Justice for many involves only one-on-one relationships. But in the Christian tradition, justice also involves the mutual relationships between the individual and the community. What does the community owe to the individual? What does the individual owe to the community? What is a just distribution of wealth? What is a just distribution of the tax burden? In addition, Christian justice today involves restorative justice that focuses on the needs of victims.
Dr. Curran is an engaging scholar and lecturer with a mischievous sense of humor; you will be rewarded by coming to hear him.
