asked: “How many of us have not, at some time or another, sought an answer to
this question by devising tests of love for our parents?”2 Later, as adults, we
came to realize that genuine love needs no selfjustification. No one can earn a
parent's love or God's, or anyone else's. Love is gift. Even though working
industriously, doing the right thing, or being just does not earn another's love,
justice does express, protect, and strengthen love in relationships. This book
shows how important ...

Two concepts long prominent in the moral culture of the West are those of love
and justice. One can imagine a society in which either or both of these was
absent; in such a society, nobody would think in terms of love or nobody would
think in terms of justice. In our society, most of us think in terms of both. We are
the present day recipients of two comprehensive imperatives issued by the
writers of antiquity that employ these concepts. One is the imperative to do justice
, coming to us ...

"Charity is the Supreme Law" At the heart of Christian faith is the conviction that "
God is love" (1 John 4:8), and that "the greatest commandment" is the "law of love
" (See Matthew 22:38-40, etc.). More recently we have renewed our conviction
and heightened our consciousness that the love preached by Jesus was deeply
rooted in his Hebrew tradition of faith that does justice. When Jesus spoke of love
, he meant love that both demands and is built upon justice as "right relationship"

We must admit, however, that people with our general shade of conviction once
were inclined to challenge this liber- tarianism \v:ih equally questionable

complacent position. Meanwhile, Russian communism presented modern history
with a complete corruption of the collectivist doctrine. This does not prove,

... the sacrament of faith refers to integral faithwfaith that is animated by love, as
has been said for centuries, but also faith that does justice, as is emphasized in
our day when we are so keenly aware of injustice on a global scale.23 In view of
the origin and call of the community into which baptism initiates a person, the
Presbyterian Worshipbook appropriately contains a prayer after baptism saying: “
God our Father: we praise you for calling us to be a servant people.”24 After the

Altruistic love is also linked to justice because the altruistic moral agent can
respond in care only to a limited and proximate number of persons; the agent
must therefore consider those larger social patterns of social and distributive
injustice that deny all persons the goods necessary for essential well-being (
Churchill, 1987). Hence the notion of "the love that does justice," associated with
