Christian Faith, Justice, and a Politics of Mercy free pdf This book assumes that the most profound moral conflict today is between two virtues-justice and mercy-and argues that these two virtues are organically linked through the common experience of compassion. In an unjust world, justice cannot establish itself but requires projects of merciful benevolence to subvert injustice and to establish justice fully, not only as liberal procedural justice but also as egalitarian economic justice.
