God calls His people to seek justice. But given the complexities of our criminal justice system, how can the followers of Jesus have a clear understanding of criminal justice issues and take action to promote peace and restoration?
To that end, Prison Fellowship® has released the Outrageous Justice® small-group curriculum, designed to awaken Christians to the need for justice that restores. Through the study, small groups learn about the challenges in the American criminal justice system and explore how Christians can respond in hands-on ways to pursue justice and bring about true hope, restoration, and healing.
THE OUTRAGEOUS JUSTICE CURRICULUM
The curriculum weaves current events, biblical context, and personal stories into a compelling conversation. It discusses how to minister to those impacted by crime and incarceration. And it looks at how to influence positive changes in our criminal justice system.
The materials include a study guide, video teaching segments, and first-person stories of people impacted by crime and incarceration. There is also a companion book that gives in-depth insights. The curriculum talks about everything from why we should be outraged by the injustices of our system to what the Bible says about the topic of justice. It also looks at some of the broader issues facing the system and zooms in on some of the details to help participants really understand the issues.
