    A Saint on Death Row will introduce you to a young man whose history, innate goodness, and final days you will never forget. It also shines a necessary light on America's racist and deeply flawed legal system. A Saint on Death Row is an absorbing, sobering, and deeply spiritual story that illuminates the moral imperatives too often ignored in the headlong quest for justice.

    Overall

    This book was a sad commentary on the justice system in the state of Texas. It’s quite sad and remarkable how the system seems to have such a significant bias against minorities. What is also quite shocking is how a country that serves as a beacon of hope for the oppressed and disadvantage of the world stills maintains the barbarism of capital punishment. I somehow get the feeling though that if the majority of Americans had the opportunity to speak directly to the issue while armed with the information that so well laid out in this book, it might be a different story. The author points out that one in eight individuals executed is quite probably innocent. Incredible! This book left me with a nagging question as to how some of those involved in the administration of justice, particularly in the state of Texas can sleep at night!
