Restorative justice refers to a social movement that seeks to repair interpersonal, communal, and social injustices without recourse to violence or retribution. Volume two analyzes the contemporary terrain of restorative justice and peacemaking in North America and profiles the exemplary work of nine practitioners who incarnate the scriptural vision in real life contexts of profound violence and injustice.

Mark Van Steenwyk is a co-founder of the Mennonite Worker in Minneapolis. He is a contributing editor at JesusRadicals.com and the producer of the Iconocast podcast. Mark is a speaker and grassroots educator; with the support of the Central Plains Mennonite Conference, he has nurtured and networked radical Christian communities throughout North America.
