  • subtitles Product description
    Based on a study project of the principles and assumptions of penal policy organised by the Edinburgh University Centre for Theology and Public Issues, this book addresses important, complex contemporary problems in a way that can readily be understood by the non-expert. Penal institutions house individual men and women, not faceless offenders and officers. What happens in our criminal justice system is our collective responsibility. But as a society we are perplexed and cnfused as to the way forward. Are helpful insights and challenges to be found in the Christian tradition?
