Crime victims have many needs, most of which our criminal justice system ignores. In fact, the justice system often increases the injury. Offenders are less ignored by this system, but their real needs—for accountability, for closure, for healing—are also left unaddressed.

Such failures are not accidental, but are inherent in the very definitions and assumptions which govern our thinking about crime and justice. Howard Zehr proposes a restorative model which is more consistent with experience, with the past, and with the biblical tradition. Based on the needs of victims and offenders, he takes into account recent studies and biblical principles.



This is the third edition of Changing Lenses, with a new Afterword by the author.

About the Author:

Howard Zehr of Harrisonburg, Virginia, is a writer and consultant on criminal Justice issues. He is co-director of Conflict Transformation Program and a professor of restorative justice at Eastern Mennonite University.

Review:

Howard Zehr demonstrates convincingly that biblical mercy is not an absurd idea but can be practically applied in our criminal justice system.... This book is a must for anyone working in the field of criminal justice, but it speaks to all of us who care about proclaiming God's mercy amidst the brokenness of our society.
--The Other Side



This book calls for a rethinking of crime and justice and offers a bold new direction. Readers should be aware, however, that it isn't merely a handy little volume with simplistic assessments and catchy slogans. The author challenges the definitions and assumptions that color our thinking and shape public policy on crime and justice.
