“The [Horizon Communities] project has proved with certainty that by allowing faith to be nurtured within prisons, changes for the better will take place… The impact of these [faith-based] teachings demonstrates that prison need not be confined to being only a space of incarceration but can be a space for living and learning.”
LORD WOOLF, LORD CHIEF JUSTICE OF ENGLAND AND WALES

“One of the most fascinating developments in the corrections field is the proliferation of religiously-oriented prisons and special prison units. My Brother’s Keeper offers a comprehensive survey as well as a meticulous assessment of these pioneering enterprises. The book is immensely topical, and it is long overdue. It is also transparently a labour of love, and reflects a deep and unconditional commitment to its subject.”
PROF. HANS TOCH, UNIVERSITY OF ALBANY, STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK

“Burnside skilfully interweaves provocative primary sources… [he has] considerable narrative abilities” (Punishment and Society 9:327 – 328).

“A meticulous and fascinating account… [which] uncovers exciting avenues for criminological exploration” (Howard Journal 47:99).
