More religion equals less crime?
from The Christian Post
It’s rare to hear about street hardened criminals in a prison sneaking around to share the Gospel with fellow inmates. But it happened at a faith-based prison in Houston, Texas. Criminologist Byron R. Johnson shared this story and stories like it when he spoke at The Family Research Council headquarters Thursday in Washington, D.C. His new book More God, Less Crime explores an emerging conversation on the effects of religion on criminal behavior, and how it can change behavior for the better. Johnson, a professor of Social Sciences and director for the Program on Prosocial Behavior at Baylor University, said the book is a compilation and analysis of almost 300 studies regarding crime and religion.
