Criminology and Public Theology: On Hope, Mercy and Restoration

Millie, Andrew ed. (2020). Criminology and Public Theology: On Hope, Mercy and Restoration. Bristol, UK: Bristol University Press.



At a time when criminal justice systems appear to be in a permanent state of crisis, leading scholars from criminology and theology come together to challenge criminal justice orthodoxy by questioning the dominance of retributive punishment.

This timely and unique contribution considers alternatives that draw on Christian ideas of hope, mercy and restoration.

Promoting cross-disciplinary learning, the book will be of interest to academics and students of criminology, socio-legal studies, legal philosophy, public theology and religious studies, as well as practitioners and policy makers.
