Received as a RBACK from AbbyNormal92243 in a very BC-like way. I look forward to reading this as I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

This is a well written, well researched, and well thought out book about the many complicated issues encompassed in the death penalty in the U. S. criminal system. Written by a Catholic nun who became involved by being a spiritual advisor to death penalty prisoners, at least two of whom she walked to the electric chair on the day of their execution, this book is both heart wrenching and educational. Sister Prejean does an excellent job of being fair handed by offering the many sides of the issue, including those of the victims and the victims' families. Thank you to AbbyNormal who kindly sent it to me and thereby greatly enriched my education. I'll take it to my next meetup to see if anyone else is interested.

The death penalty has always been an issue that I have struggled with and Sister Prejean's book has really helped me with that struggle. She does an excellent job of making one see the criminals as human and making her case for getting rid of the death penalty.

I have another book "Forgiving the Dead Man Walking" written by Debbie Morris which I will be reading next to further my educationon the death penalty. That book is written by a victim of Robert Lee Willie's other crimes (kidnapping and rape). It outlines what he did to her and how she was able to forgive him as was her Christian belief. It should be interesting.

Let me start by saying that before reading this book I stood pretty firmly in the pro-death penalty camp. I can't say that reading this (or seeing the movie many years ago) has caused any 180 degree turns in my outlook. I definitely have thought more about the effectiveness of imposing the death penalty as a deterrent and as closure for the victims. However, despite Sister Prejean's argumentse for the humanity of death row criminals, the fact that there are people sitting on death row tells me that some humans are more flawed than the rest of us.
