'Restitution' as a Christian theological concept has received scant attention in the main and even less as an essential part of the discipling of youth. Drawing on data from an extensive ethnographic study in a South African township and informed by thorough theological reflection, this paper aims to outline a defensible theology of restitution. It considers both the need for, and requirements of restitution. as a reflection of spiritual witness. In particular the paper will cover both an Older and New Testament understanding of restitution; the effects of generational sin; how grace and restitution are interrelated, and the practical application of a theology of restitution, particularly for those who live in contexts of structural injustice (as perpetrators and victims).
