Indeed, 3,600 people are on Americas death rows. This growth industry currently employs 523,000 people.Among abuses that Mark Taylor notes in this theater of terror are capital punishment, inordinate sentencing, violations of fairness in both process and results, racism in the justice system and prisons, prison rape and other terrorizing techniques, and paramilitary policing practices.With 25 years of involvement with prison reform, Taylor passionately describes and explains the excesses and injustices in our corrections system and capital punishment to foster compassionate and effective Christian action.

Remembering the executed Jesus is crucial to mobilizing effective response to `lockdownAmerica today, says Taylor.His book convincingly relates the life-engendering power of God—demonstrated in Jesus cross and resurrection—to the potential transformation of the systems of death and imprisonment.Author Biography:Mark Lewis Taylor is Professor of Theology and Culture at Princeton Theological Seminary. Among his publications is Remembering Esperanza: A Cultural-Political Theology for North American Praxis (1990).

He is also editor of the Paul Tillich, The Making of Modern Theology (1991), and co-editor of Reconstructing Christian Theology (1996).
