About this title

Synopsis:

America's justice system is broken. Offenders repeat and return to jail. Chuck Colson shows why the prevailing systems of criminal justice simply don't work. The book showcases Colson at his best, including personal stories, historical study, and shocking statistics. Bottom line: only a system that is based on a biblical worldview, a system that restores both the offender and the offended, will have any lasting success. This authoritative work is Colson's legacy statement about criminal justice. These proven principles can reverse the current criminal decline.

From the Inside Flap:

Since his incarceration in the aftermath of Watergate, Charles Colson has consistently lived and worked for a singular purpose: To transform the hearts and minds of people in prison. For twenty-five years, he has been associated with justice reform. And still today he maintains a deep passion for those behind bars and their families.

Colson's personal experience, his study of the justice system and prison reform, and most of all his interactions with prisoners themselves all come together in this new, insightful, and prophetic new book, Justice That Restores.

America is at the crossroads, he argues, and lacks clear direction in which way to turn. All the utopian theories and ideologies have failed. We build more prisons, but crime increases, and more facilities are needed. Inequities and injustice in the system abound. America needs to do something. Now.

He writes, "The remedy to this crisis goes far beyond building more prisons, hiring more police, or writing tougher penalties into the law. Such measures, no matter how draconian, will have no effect on consciences or on the culture that trains consciences. Moral failures don't register on metal detectors, and other proposed panaceas such as eliminating poverty and racism, tighter gun controls, better education, or more therapy are nothing but palliatives for the crime problem."

What is the answer?

The answer is found in the lives of Leon and Danny and Don, whose stories are told here, as well as in the lives of thousands of other convicts who have changed fundamentally deep down inside themselves, not because of the government or the justice system, but because of a connection with someone who has helped bring about a spiritual change. It is not just a change of heart, but a change of soul.

Here lies the answer: Justice That Restores.
