This book offers a powerful critique of the traditional criminal justice system and its relationships with offenders, victims and communities. The redemptive criminological approach embraces the all-too human aspects of forgiveness and redemption, and this text is a must-read for academics, professionals and students seeking an alternative point of view to current criminal justice practice. David Polizzi, Indiana State University This challenging and thought-provoking text breathes new life into the age-old concept of redemption. A must-read for all those seeking to expand the criminological imagination to construct and deliver more creative and humane practices. Lol Burke, Liverpool John Moores University.
