Item description for Reconciliation: Mission and Ministry in a Changing Social Order (Boston Theological Institute Annual) by Robert J. Schreiter...
Overview Schreiter explores the paradoxes in social and religious reflection that reveal the violence inherent in the vocation of peacemaking. He finds the ultimate paradox in the Pauline notion that accords priority to the gracious but secret action of God in working to overcome the enmity between human persons in the cross of Christ - the cross becomes the symbol of deeper processes where discord is vanquished.

This is an excellent book. Schreiter is a very intelligent, insightful writer who does a wonderful job of defining the difference between forgiveness and liberation in addition to breaking down the relationship between abusers/colonizers and their victims.
