About the Author

Nicholas Wolterstorff is Noah Porter Professor Emeritus of Philosophical Theology at Yale University.

His other books include Justice in Love, Educating for Shalom, The God We Worship, and Lament for a Son.


John Witte Jr.-- Emory University
"For the past three decades Nicholas Wolterstorff has crafted a devastating philosophical critique of and a bracing Christian alternative to John Rawls's Theory of Justice. In this exquisite new book of political theology, he tours the perennially contested questions of eros and agape, rule and equity, discipline and mercy, responsibility and forgiveness, justice and righteousness. Learned, judicious, strikingly innovative, and crystal clear, this book has all the marks of yet another Wolterstorff classic in the making."

Miroslav Volf
-- in Books and Culture
"Nicholas Wolterstorff's Justice: Rights and Wrongs is a magisterial book. In it and in its companion volume, Justice in Love, Wolterstorff has gotten justice right." Comment
"Lucid, stirring, and provocative. . . . Offers a feast of insight, wisdom, and clarification." Interpretation
"A significant and important work." Reviews in Religion & Theology
"What has love to do with justice? In this intellectually rigorous work, one of the world's preeminent Christian philosophers argues that a cogent view linking the two is both possible and inevitable given the claims of the Christian tradition itself. Making such an argument requires cutting through several difficult problems, a task Wolterstorff does with clarity and a respect for other views that deserves wide imitation." Theological Book review
"A well-researched, informative, and well-argued book. . . . This book is a must read for any Christian ethicist." Regent's Reviews
"Wolterstorff's writing is lucid, his insistence on uniting philosophy, theology and biblical exegesis within a single work is exemplary, and his contribution deserves to mark the debate about justice, love and forgiveness in the twenty-first century." Presbyterian Outlook
"Sometimes, a book comes along that entirely reshapes consideration of a key topic in theology and philosophy. Such a book is Nicholas Wolterstorff's Justice in Love." Sharing the Practice
"Nicholas Wolterstorff has written an important book that seeks to make explicit what is implicit in the liturgy. . . . Extremely helpful and worth reading closely."
