"Bless me Father, for I have sinned," says the penitent to open the dialogue in Catholic confessionals across the globe and throughout the ages. Along with the priest's words, "For your penance ..." this encounter is an icon of Catholic life. But does the script, and the practices it signifies, have any relevance beyond the confessional?In The Politics of Penance, Michael Griffin responds yes. He explores great figures of the Christian tradition--the early Irish monks, St. Thomas Aquinas, and Pope St. John Paul II--to offer surprising insights for social repair. The result is a new ethic, which Griffin applies to contemporary crises in criminal justice, truth and reconciliation, and the treatment of soldiers returning from war.

Michael Griffin

MICHAEL GRIFFIN has lived in Portland almost his entire life, even before it was the coolest American city. He's worked over 23 years in a factory that cuts huge chunks of steel into smaller ones, and spends as much time as possible running, mountain biking, roving on beaches, and skiing, snowshoeing and hiking on Mt. Hood. He's also an electronic ambient musician (as M. Griffin, and half of Viridian Sun) and founder of Hypnos Recordings, the ambient music record label his wife helps run. Griffin's stories have appeared in magazines like Black Static, Apex, Strange Aeons and Lovecraft eZine, a
