Victim's Rights by Gary North - Reconstructionist Radio (Audiobook)
Dr. Gary North sets out the biblical view of crime and punishment in this title. Too often in modern legal proceedings the victim is punished more severely than the criminal. The case law of Scripture provides a workable antidote to modern injustice in our courts of law. The 17 chapters of this 300-page book are an extract and expansion of material found in North’s colossal Tools of Dominion. Here North sets out the biblical view of crime and punishment, arguing that in all cases biblical law works to restore the victims while punishing the criminal – the reverse of the modern judicial practice, which leaves the victim in his suffering and seeks to rehabilitate the criminal. North takes up case by case the teachings on crime and punishment handed down by God to Moses on Mount Sinai, discusses what these meant in that society, and suggests implications for today.
