McElrea, F W M (2001). A Christian approach to conflict resolution. Address presented to the Australasian Christian Legal Convention. Victoria, Australia, 1-4 February

In this address, Judge F. W. M. McElrea looks specifically at mediation and at restorative justice as a New Testament or Christian approach to conflict resolution. He provides several reasons for this characterization of restorative justice: (1) its rejection of legalism and formalism is akin to the thought and spirit of the New Testament; (2) it allows a place for grace; (3) it expresses other Christian values or makes possible their expression; (4) it reflects a partnership model rather than a dominator model; and (5) Christians are called to avoid revenge, thus leaving judgment to God.
