A Case for Life: Justice, Mercy, and the Death Penalty

Feb 17, 2018

Within the just-released book, five authors make compelling arguments against the death penalty from their own perspectives – among them are lawyers, faith leaders, and a supreme court justice. Their personal experiences with both victims and perpetrators provide a moral case for ending state-sponsored killing. The book’s contributors:

  • The Right Reverend Robert Wright, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta
  • Stephen B. Bright, Attorney at Law, Southern Center for Human Rights
  • Susan Casey, Attorney at Law, Appeals attorney for Kelly Gissendaner
  • Bishop C. Andrew Doyle, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas
  • Justice Norman S. Fletcher, Retired Chief Justice, Supreme Court of Georgia
