A masterful study now in paperback with a new preface and Scripture index

Love and justice have long been prominent themes in the moral culture of the West, yet they are often considered to be deeply at odds with one another. In this book acclaimed Christian philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff argues that the commonly perceived tension between justice and love reveals something faulty in our understanding of each.

This paperback publication adds a new preface and Scripture index to the original hardcover edition. Building upon Wolterstorff's expansive discussion of justice in his magisterial Justice: Rights and Wrongs and thoughtfully engaging alternative views, this book focuses in profound ways on the complex yet ultimately harmonious relation between justice and love.

This book is also available in hardcover.
Pro Rege
"Serves as an excellent primer for understanding the complexities of the relationship of love and justice, both philosophically and practically. . . . Beneficial to Christian theorists and practitioners alike in developing an ethic of justice, self-love, and world engagement."
Andrews University Seminary Studies
"Offers vital insight. . . . Serves to give Christians a new perspective on a subject we too often neglect to reflect upon."
Jean Bethke Elshtain
"In this brilliant work Nicholas Wolterstorff does what many thought impossible: he brings fresh insights to a debate that long ago grew stale and predictable. Justice in Love is exemplary in its clarity and balance."
Robin W. Lovin
"Anyone interested in Christian ethics will find new possibilities here, not only in relation to moral philosophy but also for pastoral care and political life."
"A rich, fertile and penetrating work. . . . Offers a major contribution of philosophical theology in the service of a key issue for both personal Christian discipleship and public life."
"A nice blend of rigorous analytical thinking and casual writing. Wolterstorff sprinkles his philosophical examination with pertinent and telling examples from everyday life. . . . Highly recommended."
"A significant and important work."
