The Biblical Case Against the Death Penalty with Shane Claiborne

Inside This Episode

According to anti-death penalty activist and author Shane Claiborne, American Christians have long been beholden to a hyper-punitive model of justice that favors the wealthy, white, and well-connected. But as he details in this episode, many within the church are awakening to a radically new vision of justice that opposes the death penalty not in spite of the Christian faith, but because of it. Central to this vision is the crucifixion of Christ – a bloody sacrifice that many consider to be the execution to end all executions.
