AOT #32: Sister Helen Prejean Podcasts The Death of Innocents
Sister Helen Prejean, author of the national bestseller Dead Man Walking, discusses and reads from the new paperback edition of her important second book, The Death of Innocents: An Eyewitness Account of Wrongful Executions.
The Death of Innocents is a brave and firecely argued book that tests the moral edge of the debate on capital punishment: What if we’re executing innocent men? As Sister Prejean recounts several cases of innocent men being executed, and takes us through their terrible last moments, she brilliantly dismantles the legal and religious arguments that have been used to justify the death penalty.
