The Political Dimension of Reconciliation

Full Product Description

Examines the nature of reconciliation in both theological and political terms. / When a nation is working through its past, the call for reconciliation is often expressed, as was the case in South Africa after the end of apartheid and in Germany after the fall of the Berlin Wall. In this book Ralf Wstenberg investigates the conditions and dynamics associated with political reconciliation. / He starts from the observation that reconciliation as a central theme in Christian theological teaching is spoken of in both theology and politics. But does it mean the same thing in both contexts? Is there a commonality of meaning for words like guilt and reconciliation in politics and theology? Where and under what conditions is it possible to translate from theological language into political and vice versa? Wstenbergs study promotes a genuine dialogue between religion and politics by carefully analyzing moral discourses in political transitions to democracy.

The Political Dimension of Reconciliation by Ralf K. Wustenberg was published by Eerdmans Publishing Company in May 2009. The ISBN for The Political Dimension of Reconciliation is 9780802828248.
