Product Overview

Crime should be of interest to all of us. Sooner or later, most families will have a member who becomes involved with the justice system either as a criminal or a victim. Many victims are scarred for life by some criminal behavior. When a criminal changes his/her ways we all benefit. When a criminal?s family becomes healthy everyone benefits. The criminal?s children are much less likely to become criminals, as happens in many cases now. It is essential to help criminals and their families if we are going to reduce crimeDr. Elsey has considerable experience working with over 300 criminals and their families as a chaplain, the focus of his work being on shoring up fragile family relationships. He has served in juvenile and adult correctional institutions, as well as spending years working on the mean streets of his community. He knows what it is to roll out of bed at 3:00 a.m. to help someone in need. Dr Elsey says there are no easy answers. This book shares many insights related to criminal behavior and makes recommendations which, if put into practice every day in our lives, would certainly reduce crime. His insights into the cause and cure of crime need to be considered if crime is to be reduced. This book, besides dealing with the why of crime, also provides much helpful material for families in many problem areas, such as relationships, parenting, addictions, violence and self- image.
