In the Christ and Culture podcast with Ken Keathley and Benjamin Quinn, we explore how the Christian faith intersects all avenues of today’s culture through conversations with leading thinkers.
Does criminal justice need reforming? How might the Bible inform the rule of law in the public square? Matthew Martens is a trial lawyer in Washington, DC. He has spent the bulk of his more than twenty-five-year legal career practicing criminal law both as a federal prosecutor and as a defense attorney. He joins us to discuss his new book, Reforming Criminal Justice: A Christian Proposal. He highlights the strengths of America’s criminal justice system, the failures, some disturbing statistics, the importance of embracing jury duty, and more. (The conversation begins at 8:10.)
PLUS, in “Headlines” (1:05) Dr. Benjamin Quinn talks about the Texas Rangers’ World Series, the beauty of fall sports seasons, and the virtue intrinsic to sport. And in “On My Bookshelf” (33:10), Mr. Martens recommends a book on the rise of populism.
