I've never supported the death penalty and this book reaffirmed my position, whilst opening my mind and heart to those condemned to death. Whatever your stance on the death penalty, I would recommend reading this book and questioning your stance as you read.
The book is essentially a biography of the former chaplain at the Walls unit in Texas. It doesn't deal with "day to day" life on death row, but gives a perspective on executions from the point of view of someone in the establishment. It's powerful and moving.
He describes the prisoners well and i feel this book could change peoples minds about the death senntence. Its a very interesting and easy to read and one I def recommend.
