Rev. Dr. B. Bruce Cook has been the inspiration behind substantive victim's rights legislation in Georgia for the last twenty- five years.

He enlightens the world with his vision of a restored segment of American society - that of victims of crime. He exposes the gap between criminal justice and victim justice.

This book will be an invaluable resource for support groups, victim advocates and organizations that provide training for those entering the field of victim services.

Bruce Cook's experience as crime victim, correctional chaplain and crime victim counselor provides the foundation for a very useful book for anyone considering ministry in the midst of the contemporary justice complex. Through the lens of his life and experience the reader is challenged to recognize that ministry is where retributive and restorative patterns of justice intersect. This book could be an invaluable resource for those contemplating the chaplaincy field in criminal justice or lay ministry to crime victims and prisoners
