Synopsis

Pro-Justice Ethics: From Lament to Nonviolence is an original work within Christian social ethics and is based upon the civil rights movement, the philosophy of nonviolence, and the biblical lament tradition. The author formulates the justice imperative as an ethic of duty and defines justice as an act of protesting, preventing, and remedying injustices that cause human suffering. Formally, injustice is the violation of fairness, equality, and dignity, but in its primal form injustice is child abuse. Birth and death are discussed from a justice perspective beyond the dichotomy of pro-life and pro-choice. Special attention is devoted to the injustices of globalization, international human rights abuses, and corporate violations of the natural rights of water in the earth commons.
