An eminent Christian philosopher's take on justice, rights, wrongs - and what love has to do with it allLove 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 one another. In this book acclaimed Christian philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff shows that justice and love are at heart 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.'Wolterstorff's Justice in Love is a welcome companion and follow-up volume to his magnificent Justice: Rights and Wrongs (Princeton, 2010). Building upon his expansive discussion of justice in that earlier work and charitably engaging alternative views, this book focuses in profound new ways on the complex yet ultimately harmonious relation between justice and love.Table of Contents PrefaceChapter One IntroductionPART ONE Benevolence-AgapismChapter Two Modern Day AgapismChapter Three Classical Modern Day Agapism on the Relation of Love to JusticeChapter Four Irony and Impossibility in Classical Modern Day AgapismChapter Five Niebuhr?s Non-Classical AgapismPART TWO Care-AgapismChapter Six Justice as LoveChapter Seven What Is Justice?Chapter Eight Beginning to Rethink LoveChapter Nine Love as CareChapter Ten Do Motivations Matter?Chapter Eleven Rules of Application for CareChapter Twelve Correcting Two ImpressionsChapter Thirteen Is Care-Agapism Too Easy?Chapter Fourteen Love, Justice, and the GoodPART THREE Just and Unjust LoveChapter Fifteen What Is Forgiveness?Chapter Sixteen How the Recognition of Forgiveness Came about and What?s Its Point?Chapter Seventeen Does Forgiveness Violate Justice?Chapter Eighteen Just and Unjust GenerosityChapter Nineteen Just and Unjust PaternalismPART FOUR The Justice of God?s LoveChapter Twenty The Justice of God?s Generosity in RomansChapter Twenty-One What Is Justification and Is It Just?Index
