Publishers Description
What kind of society do we want? That is the ultimate question Gardner C. Hanks asks in this compelling book.

Drawing on Old and New Testament resources as well as secular arguments, Hanks shows that the death penalty harms rather than helps any quest for a just, humane society. Used primarily against the poor or mentally disabled, capital punishment reinforces societal inequities and exacerbates racism. Hanks demonstrates through research data that the death penalty is not only an ineffective crime-fighting tool, it also brings out the worst in society, pollutes the political process, and threatens human rights.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
against the idolization of death  Jan 21, 2003
Gardner Hank's Against the Death Penalty is a concise summary of the arguments against capital punishment. Forceful, rational arguments are made from religious and secular viewpoints. I highly recommend this book for anyone, of any faith, especially those who are unsure, or favor, the death penalty. Christian's especially need to reflect on Jesus' own execution, and with spiritual maturity examine our beliefs about the purpose and value of human life. The book is convincing, and Gardner's style holds one's interest, never being overly emotional or repetitive.
 
stood for 6 hours and read it  Jul 12, 2001
Its that compelling. I see various reviewers referring to the Bible but conveniently skipping the COMMANDMENTS to not kill and to love God and your neighbors. In Matthew, Jesus submitted that the entire law and all the proclamations of the prophets hang upon loving God, and loving each other. Thus, if one claims to be a Christian, you have been COMMANDED to not kill, and to love your God and your neighbor, before anything else. So, please, don't use the Bible to justify killing by ignoring COMMANDMENTS and referring to obscure passages. Which do you think God will hold you to, when judgement comes?

This book speaks to the moralist in all of us, hoping to come to the only conclusion any moral human could: killing is always wrong, be it killing by individuals, or killing by the state

 
Great summary of religious arguments  Nov 21, 2000
I dare any Christian who is currently in favor of the death penalty to read this book! It's fairly short and won't take much of your time...but it WILL speak truth to your heart.
 
An important book and resource that fills a needed niche  Jan 27, 1998
Although there are several books available that detail facts, figures and stories on the death penalty, I found Gardner Hank's book to have the best organized and appropriately concise presentation of the arguments against the death penalty. In particular I think it is appropriate to divide the perspective on the issue into secular and nonsecular arguments. In particular for me, as an agnostic with experience opposing the death penalty, I benefited most from Gard's careful and 'from the heart' presentation of the deeper meanings behind why a Christian must find the death penalty so abhorrent. A book definitely of value to give to friends willing to explore the rational arguments against the death penalty.
