A lifelong student and teacher of Scripture responds to the Year of Mercy and to the document by Pope Francis, The Face of Mercy, by looking closely at the theme of mercy in the Bible. He sketches the graciousness of God, our loving Parent, so full of compassion for us in our frailty and our failures. He shows that, once the biblical understanding of justice is appreciated, there is no conflict between justice and mercy. He hopes that this short book will help readers enter into the spirit of the Jubilee Year.
