What’s the goal of justice? To punish the offender as payment for wrongdoing or to restore the offender to community? We continue our series on power by talking with Dominique DuBois Gilliard about how our anemic vision of justice has created a very broken incarceration system in the United States.
Dominique helps us see that even though we are addicted to vengeance, God’s justice is inherently restorative. God’s goal is for sinners to reintegrate into a flourishing human community.
