In honor of Holy Week, we are making a chapter from Executing Grace: How the Death Penalty Killed Jesus and Why It’s Killing Us, by Shane Claiborne, available for FREE. Click here to read chapter five, “The Most Famous Execution in History.”
Check out the book and then put your faith into action. Call Gov. Asa Hutchinson in Arkansas to ask him to stop the string of executions set to begin the day after Easter. His number is 501-682-2345.
As Shane says, “God gave us grace when we didn’t deserve grace, and we disgrace the cross every time we call for the execution of another person… I pray Hutchison will be moved deep in his heart with compassion and mercy — the stuff Easter is made of — and stand on the side of life.”
