The Jesus Factor in Justice and Peacemaking:
Theological Postings, Volume 1
This concise book addresses the impact of Jesus on the practice of
conflict resolution interventions, such as restorative justice, peacebuilding, mediation, and trauma healing. Those who claim to be Christ’s followers must
ask, What is “the Jesus Factor” in justice and peacebuilding?
“If you are a Christian interested in peace, if you are a Christian justice or peace practitioner, if you are Buddhist or Hindu or Jewish and interested in understanding connections between your own faith and Christian approaches to peace—then this book is for you.” —Howard Zehr, Professor of Restorative Justice, Center for Justice and Peacebuilding, Eastern Mennonite University, in the Foreword
“In the spirit of such peacemakers as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Kraus presents a christocentric vision as a corrective to Christian ideologies that have rendered Jesus irrelevant or condoned violence as a means to peace—and as a bridge to other faith traditions through the very dialogical process needed for others to consider Christianity a genuine partner for peacemaking in the world today.” —Larry Dunn, Associate Professor of Peacemaking and Conflict Studies, Fresno Pacific University
