Based on the exploration of justice, retribution, and redemption he details in his book Executing Grace, Shane Claiborne offers a powerful and persuasive appeal for the abolition of the death penalty. Shane tells stories of horrific pain and heroic grace. He recounts interviews with victims of violent crimes, survivors of death row, lawyers, experts, and even an executioner. Shane explores the contrast between punitive justice and restorative justice, questioning our notions of fairness, revenge, and absolution.
