The restorative justice movement incorporates a growing body of academic theory and diversity of practice. 'Basic Principles' on the use of restorative justice were endorsed by the Eleventh Session of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in 2002. This article begins with a preliminary critique of contemporary restorative justice, arguing that a preoccupation with technique and process has subverted the theological vision of some foundational theorists. The discussion continues with a brief overview of key Christian contributions to restorative justice theory, focusing on the work of Howard Zehr, Christopher D. Marshall and Daniel W. Van Ness, and concludes by asserting that a more holistic Christology is required from future theological contributions to restorative justice practices.
