Mercy. Theories, Concepts, Practices
Proceedings from the International Congres TU Apeldoorn / Kampen, NL June 2014
Mercy is an important concept in the Christian moral tradition. It is one of the most prominent divine attributes, and is embodied in Jesus Christ. This volume investigates the concept of mercy from a Protestant point of view with respect to its consequences for an increasingly non-Christian society. Starting form its biblical origins, a group of international authors explicates the intrinsically messianic logic of divine mercy for its potential in current theological ethics, practical ecclesiology, systematic and public theology. Theories on mercy and its related concepts like justice, compassion, forgiveness, and love, prove to bear valuable consequences for practices of charity and their theological evaluation. The essays were presented at the first bi-annual conference of the research group Reformed Traditions in Secular Europe of the Theological Universities Apeldoorn and Kampen (The Netherlands).
