Executing Grace by Shane Claiborne

Executing Grace

How the Death Penalty Killed Jesus and Why It's Killing Us

by Shane Claiborne

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
7 Hrs. 48 Min.


In this reasoned exploration of justice, retribution, and redemption, the champion of the new monastic movement, popular speaker, and author of the best-selling The Irresistible Revolution offers a powerful and persuasive appeal for the abolition of the death penalty.

The Bible says an eye for an eye. But is the state's taking of lives true - or even practical - punishment for convicted prisoners? In this thought-provoking work, Shane Claiborne explores the issue of the death penalty and the contrast between punitive justice and restorative justice, questioning our notions of fairness, revenge, and absolution.

Using a historical lens to frame his argument, Claiborne draws on testimonials and examples from Scripture to show how the death penalty is not the ideal of justice that many believe. Not only is a life lost; so, too, is the possibility of mercy and grace. In Executing Grace, he reminds us of the divine power of forgiveness and evokes the fundamental truth of the Gospel - that no one, even a criminal, is beyond redemption.
