I’m very much looking forward to the fuller version. Two things came to mind when reading this two page version:
- I would be very interested to see Wolterstorff grapple with the global/international dimensions of justice - both with respect to the OT (e.g. Israel’s call to love the (often foreign) stranger; condemnations of the injustices of nations in Amos etc) and also today. I have drawn on Wolterstorff’s writing about justice & flourishing & (domestic) politics in my own work on these (international) issues, and would be eager to read his own thoughts on such international matters.
- I would be very interested to see some explanation for why Wolterstorff explores justice by focusing on rights, rather than responsibilities. I wonder if focusing on responsibilities might enable a more comprehensive approach by enabling consideration of who in particular is required to secure the rights of others (a crucial issue in matters of environmental justice, refugees, etc).
