Deanova, Simyona
September 2013
Whosoever;Sep/Oct2013, Vol. 18 Issue 2, p10
The author explores the answers to the question as to whether people truly understand justice, and if justice is really always fair, citing Jesus' death as an example of God's justice for everyone, with His son dying instead so that in His name the people could be free from execration. She emphasizes how the root of true justice can be obtained by learning how to love freely and unconditionally.
