Item Description...
Overview
This book goes beyond proof-text arguments to examine biblical statements about capital punishment in their historical contexts and for present meaning. Does the use of capital punishment in the USA meet Old Testament standards for fairness? How did Jesus and the early church extend God's love in restorative justice? Hanks convincingly shows that the use of the death penalty is not consistent with Jesus' call for love and forgiveness.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A stringent denouncement of state-sanctioned execution  Dec 5, 2002
Written by death penalty abolitionist Gardner C. Hanks (Amnesty International State Death Penalty Action Coordinator for Idaho) as a stringent denouncement of the process of state-sanctioned execution, Capital Punishment And The Bible draws directly from the Christian scriptures to emphasize the importance of forgiveness, love, and restoration. A strongly worded, powerfully articulated, highly persuasive, theological and humanitarian stand that invokes both Biblical and secular reasonings against capital punishment, Captial Punishment And The Bible is a welcome and timely contribution to the on-going national dialog, especially in these troubled times. Also highly recommended reading is Gardner C. Hanks earlier work, Against The Death Penalty: Christian And Secular Arguments Agasint Capital Punishment.
 
Personal Prejudice  May 2, 2002
Gard wrote this book in response to readers' reactions to the first two chapters of Against the Death Penalty. And I read it because I helped edit it, and therefore my five star rating is biased. However, Gard and I thought it was much better written than his first book, but it definitely only examines the biblical/religious arguments against the death penalty.

In the Old Testament someone could only be sentenced to death under very stringent conditions. For example: Two eye witnesses had to testify. No relative of the victim could testify. No person involved in the crime could testify. The cultural and historical examination of Old and New Testament beliefs is very thought provoking and you will find close parallels to Ohio's recommended guidelines for ending the moratorium on the death penalty.

Gard died on February 2nd after being sick for over a year with cancer. He did not see this book in publication.
