Tom Porter, director of the Program in Religion and Conflict Transformation at Boston University School of Theology and former Executive Director of JustPeace, delivered the 2013 Karl Cron Community Lecture, speakin on “Restorative Justice” as a response to mass incarceration, retributive justice and retributive theology.
“Restorative justice is the future,” Porter said, “But it’s also what we have been reading about since we were children in Sunday school … biblical justice.”
The principles of restorative justice are indeed prophetic ones as they provide a framework for doing the work that God has called us to do with both victims and offenders.
