God loves justice and calls His people to seek it. But how do we respond to our complex—and broken—criminal justice system?
Outrageous Justice is a free small group study developed by Prison Fellowship ® to help followers of Jesus explore the American criminal justice system through a biblical lens and learn hands-on ways to pursue justice, hope, and healing in your community.
WHY DO WE NEED OUTRAGEOUS JUSTICE?
God calls us to remember the prisoner (Hebrews 13:3)—a call that is more urgent than ever, as witnessed in the alarming statistics about our criminal justice system.
2.2 million Americans are in jail or prison.
70 million adults have a criminal record.
2.7 million children have a parent behind bars.
4.5 million Americans are on probation or parole.
2 out of 3 released prisoners will be re-arrested within three years.
28,000+ people are arrested every day.
