Death Penalty

NPR's religion correspondent Duncan Moon examines the concept of divine justice as it applies to the death penalty. With the execution of Timothy McVeigh and Juan Raul Garza this month, congregations across the country are grappling with how justice should be served. Duncan Moon takes us to Hamilton Township, New Jersey to parishioners at Faith Baptist Church and St. Mark.
