“Executing Grace:” a conversation with Shane Claiborne (podcast)
Shane Claiborne is a name known to many mainline Christians, Evangelicals, and Emergent Church devotees. Shane’s lifestyle of simplicity and solidarity with the poor echoes the lifestyle of Jesus in ways bound to make even the most devoted among us uncomfortable.
In this episode, we will talk with the always provocative Shane Claiborne, who in his latest book, takes on the American system of mass incarceration, and most notably, the death penalty. We’ll talk with Shane about the how people of color are disproportionately sentenced to death in the United States, the problem of false convictions, and the disturbing reality that areas populated by Christians also tend to be areas most likely to hand out the death penalty.
