Miroslav Volf: War in Ukraine: Theological & Moral Reflections (April 2022)
RJI is glad to share the following podcast with you from Dr. Miroslav Volf at the Yale Center for Faith and Culture at Yale University Divinity School in New Haven, Connecticut. Miroslav is a Croatian Protestant theologian. He is also the Henry B. Wright Professor of Theology at Yale Divinity School.
Volf’s podcast on the war in Ukraine from a theological and moral perspective is particularly critical at this hour. The podcast is part of a series produced by the Yale Divinity School called “For the Life of the World.”

Find also Volf’s book published in 1996 called “Exclusion & Embrace: A Theological Exploration of Identity, Otherness, and Reconciliation.” RJI’s President Lisa Rea first heard Volf speak at an international convocation of Prison Fellowship International in the 1990s. RJI is glad to be in touch with Dr. Volf, and the Yale Center for Faith and Culture at this time.
We hope that RJI’s connection with Dr. Volf, and the Center, may be helpful and useful by encouraging the use of restorative justice principles which emphasizes peacemaking through dialogue based on truth, even during times of war and violent conflict. To the victims and victims’ families who are in need of healing and hope, RJI shares Volf’s podcast.
RJI thanks the Yale Center for permission to re-publish this podcast.
