Restorative Justice - Seminary Course

Instructors: Harold Dean Trulear and Sylvia Moseley (TA). School: United Theological Seminary/Payne Theological Seminary. Date: January Term 2008. Description: Restorative Justice refers to a branch of ethics concerned with setting right relationships in response to offense. In the criminal justice system, offense is treated through some form of consequence, usually punitive. But the Christian needs to look beyond punishment to the concept of order and right relationship prescribed by God in His will for His people. So while the criminal justice system tends to punish and segregate offenders, the church strives for more- for restoration of relationships and all this entails. If participants take this course seriously, they will never be able to rid themselves of the image of a new way to address crime and justice in America- and especially in the African American community.
