Book Review Introduction: August/September 2023

This month we cover recent books that range from the historical to the contemporary in their focus – from Nazi Germany to the current movement to abolish the prison system.  Michael Pickett reviews Break Every Yoke: Religion, Justice and the Abolition of Prisons by Joshua Dubler and Vincent Lloyd.  Michael Birkner reviews one of several volumes of letters written by an American pastor serving in Berlin during the Nazi regime, A Cold Descending Fog: Letters Home and a Memoir from Wartime Berlin, 1939 – 1940.
