Howard Zehr. Changing Lenses: A New Focus for Crime and Justice. Paperback: 227pp. Herald Press: 1990.
From back cover: Changing Lenses examines our assumptions about crime and justice, which it terms a "retributive" lens or paradigm. It then looks at historical, biblical and practical alternatives. This book proposes a "restorative" model which is...based on the needs of victims and offenders, on past ways of responding to crime, on recent experiments and on biblical principles.
