A Theologian's View of Justice Apr 11, 2007
Father Burghardt is a brillant Jesuit theologian who applies his wisdom and experience to today's serious social, religious, and environmental issues. His work should be included in the library of anyone concerned with questions of our responsibilities here on earth.
Burghardt on Justice Mar 9, 2007
Burghardt has a wonderful, compassionate heart for the marginalized. In Justice: A Global Adventure he seeks to raise the consciousness of Christians concerning the very real racial and socio-economic issues that we face in the U.S. The paradigm for his social ethic is rooted in Roman Catholic social teaching.
While he is well-intentioned in his efforts, much of his narrative, particularly the statistics, is one-sided and simplistic. In his rightful effort to give voice to the voiceless Burghardt fails to address some of the fair critiques of the "powerful."
For the purpose of raising consciousness of social justice issues, this is a fair primer. However, one should seek out other material, perhaps even from more conservative sources, in order to get a balanced perspective on social justice.
