Publisher's Description

This report, commissioned by the Mission and Public Affairs Council of the Church of England, is an important contribution to the national debate on the future of sentencing and the role of the courts. It considers the efficacy and integrity of the current criminal justice system and the principles of restorative justice, responsible sentencing, rehabilitation and atonement from a Christian perspective.

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.

Contributing authors: Stuart Dew, David Faulkner, Lord Justice Laws, Tim Newell, Stephen Pryor, Bishop Peter Selby.

Editorial Reviews

'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.'
'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.'
