A cross-disciplinary book that present new thinking on the place of hope, mercy and restoration within criminal justice.
At a time when criminal justice systems appear to be in a permanent state of crisis, leading scholars from criminology and theology come together to challenge criminal justice orthodoxy by questioning the dominance of retributive punishment.
This timely and unique contribution considers alternatives which draw on Christian ideas of hope, mercy and restoration.
Promoting cross-disciplinary learning, the book will be of interest to academics and students of criminology, socio-legal studies, legal philosophy, public theology and religious studies, as well as practitioners and policy makers.
