Ecumenical and up-to-date with current legislation, the report is edited by Peter Sedgwick, until recently, the Policy Adviser for the Home Affairs department in the Church of England. Peter Sedgwick is one of the Churches' leading experts on the criminal justice system.

About the Author:

Peter Sedgwick was the Policy Officer for the Home Affairs department in the Church of England from 1996 to 2004. He is one of the Church's leading experts on the criminal justice system. He is now principal of St Michaels College, Llandaff, Wales. All the other contributors also have backgrounds in criminal justice.

Review:

'Rethinking Sentencing is a thoughtful, insightful and refreshing contribution to penal thinking. The authors demonstrate convincingly that Christian principles require a radically different approach to sentencing, one based on restoring the damage caused by crime and respecting the hunanity of all those affected by it.' (Paul Cavadino, Chief Executive, Nacro)

'This thoughtful collection of essays not only brings a Christian perspective to bear on the highly charged subject of sentencing, but raises a wide range of profound questions about how society deals with offenders. It will be of great interest to all those who work in, study, or worry about criminal justice.' (Rob Allen, Director, Rethinking Crime and Punishment)

Book Description Church House Publishing. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 98 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.8in. x 0.2in.Church of Englands Mission and Public Affairs Council. At a time when the Government is engaged in major reform of the courts, what should be our response, as Christians, to crime This topical exploration aims to step back from the debate on prisons and crime rates and ask why people are punished, for what purpose and how the experience of being subject to trial affects their citizenship and ability to be part of a community. Written by those who are both Christians and national experts in their field, this collection of essays particularly considers: the reform of sentencing and the future of the criminal courts; the principles of restorative justice and responsible sentencing; Christian involvement in the criminal justice process, whether individually or as a community. This timely contribution to the debate calls for a fundamental reassessment of the sentencing process and argues that the Christian faith provides a new vision for the future of criminal justice: through redemption and reconciliation rather than retribution and punishment. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9780715143391
