Drawing upon Catholic social teaching, traditional writings, and Sacred Scripture, this book presents a Catholic perspective of crime and criminal justice in America. Specifically, it presents a policy framework for the criminal justice system describing how and why police, courts, and corrections should adopt the tenets of restorative and community justice. In addition, it presents how certain crime-related issues would be addressed under a Catholic perspective, particularly focusing on the death penalty, abortion, euthanasia, and so-called victimless crimes.

Willard M. Oliver

Willard M. Oliver is an associate professor at the College of Criminal Justice at Sam Houston State University.

Oliver has successfully integrated an explanation of Catholic principles with a reflective appraisal of contemporary criminal justice. He provides a framework for envisioning a more just system and his treatise is a catalyst for critically assessing goals of the criminal justice system. -- Peter Benekos, Mercyhurst College
