Reforming Criminal Justice: A Conversation with Matthew T. Martens

Matthew T. Martens is the author of Reforming Criminal Justice: A Christian Proposal, a book in which he hopes “to demonstrate from Scripture that justice is, most fundamentally, an issue of love.” “Get love right,” he says, “and you will get justice right. But you will never set the justice system straight without a proper understanding of love.” Bringing together his almost thirty years of practicing trial law and his theological training, Matt describes and explains the biblical foundations of criminal justice and assesses the history and current practices of the American criminal justice system in light of them. During a visit to Cairn’s campus, he sat down with Dr. Keith Plummer to discuss these important matters.
