By Man Shall His Blood Be Shed: A Catholic Defense of Capital Punishment
Edward Feser, Joseph Bessette
"Based primarily on the natural law, this excellent and much-needed book will be valuable to Catholics and readers of any faith who ask why capital punishment is justified."
— J. Budziszewski, Ph.D., University of Texas
"At long last, we have a serious and intelligent look at all aspects of the death penalty —its causes, its justification, its consequences for the victim, the criminal himself, and for civil society."
— James V. Schall, S. J., Professor Emeritus, Georgetown University
"An illuminating study of a subject often clouded by emotions. An essential read for anyone who wants to understand this thorny subject."
— Robert Royal, President, Faith and Reason Institute
