“Justice, Guilt and Forgiveness in the Penal System.”

Duff, A
June 4, 2015

Source: (1990) Edinburgh, United Kingdom: University of Edinburgh, Occasional Paper No. 18.

These four papers explore the principals and assumptions on which British corrections policies rest and ways in which Christian theology might help formulate or even transform the moral framework in which correctional institutions currently operate. Themes of justice, guilt, forgiveness, and vocation are central to the consideration of the relationship between Christian theology and practical issues in criminal justice.
