Byron Johnson - Religion, Crime and Prisons Good Faith Effort

    • Judaism

What is the relationship between religion and crime? What impact does faith have on and in America’s prison system? What role does faith have in accomplishing the goals of the criminal justice system?
To unpack all of this, Rabbi Lamm spoke with the world expert on religion and criminology, Baylor University’s Byron Johnson.
They talked about what the data tell us about the impact of religion on crime and criminality, what role faith can and does play in the prison system itself, how to bring the values of repentance and personal redemption deeper into American life, whether in the context of life-after-prison or even cancel culture, what we can learn from the fact that the Bible doesn’t use incarceration as a punishment, and much more!
