This book unambiguously opposes capital punishment as the immoral act of "the killing state." Lind traces Yahweh’s saving action and steadfast love for Israel and the world from Moses to Elijah to Jesus, and shows how they are to be emulated on the societal level by obedience to covenant law. This leads to his conclusion that capital punishment is to be opposed because from the perspective of the God revealed in the Bible—determined in Lind’s view by the careful reading of the text he has attempted here—capital punishment is simply wrong.
