We begin by looking at the writings of people who influenced early restorative justice theory. Explorers of Restorative Justice Theory To many, Howard Zehr is the “grandfather” of restorative justice; he was certainly one of the first articulators of restorative justice theory. His interest grew out of work with victim–offender reconciliation programs, and his articles, speeches, books, and teaching have profoundly influenced the field. In his 1990 book, Changing Lenses,8 he consolidated and advanced his critique of criminal justice as failing to meet the needs of victims or offenders.
This conception would not describe something as restorative if it did not provide some sort of redress to direct victims and, perhaps, communities and offenders as well. The third is the transformation conception. This is far more expansive than the other two because it has to do with broken relationships at multiple levels of society. It addresses not simply individual instances of harm but goes beyond to structural issues of injustice, such as racism, sexism, and classism. Each of these prevents people from living in whole, harmonious, and healthy relationships with others and with their social and physical environments.
The pertinent section addresses the connection between justice and love, and reads in part: This aligning of justice and love is something which it is the peculiar task of Christian believers to promote, and in doing so they need to see beyond the secular conception of justice in its threefold form of distributive, commutative and retributive justice. Justice also has a restorative element. It is perhaps misleading to picture a fourth element which can be added at will to the other three. Walther Schönfeld (Ueber die Gerechtigkeit, 1952) has suggested an alternative picture in terms of dimensions.
