Making Justice Our Business
The Wrongful Conviction of Darryl Hunt and the Work of Faith
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Stephen Boyd offers a moving account of the eighteen-year-long nightmare of Darryl Hunt. A Thrown-Away-One, threatened with state execution, Hunt refused to lie to save himself and insisted that justice be done. In the faithful work of extraordinarily ordinary Muslims, Jews, and Christians, we see the force of divine love that wouldn't quit, and we catch a clear vision of what it takes from all of us to create a humane society where it is easier for us to truly love all our brothers and sisters."

" . . . I suggest this book as an important read for every American citizen."
author of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
"At a moment when the US has the ignoble distinction of being the world's largest incarcerator--we have some 5 percent of the world's population but fully 25 percent of the world's prison population--here arrives the factually and morally grounded story of Darryl Hunt, whose frame up and wrongful conviction is terrifyingly and meticulously documented by Wake Forest's Stephen Boyd . . . In reading Making Justice Our Business, I am left with an overwhelming sense of awe and gratitude for Darryl's spirit and Professor Boyd's tenacity."
author of The Prisoner's Wife
" . . . Making Justice Our Business is equal parts ringing social critique and personal faith journey. For Darryl and for all who continue to suffer unjustly, another necessary blow against the prison industrial complex has been struck."
