An essay on imprisonment could cover many areas from the inhumaneness of solitary confinement and its contribution to mental illness, Christians around the globe imprisoned for their faith, injustices suffered by women in the prison system, the ineffectiveness of imprisonment on the reduction of crime, racial inequality in the penal system, the mistreatment of undocumented persons, the suffering of children of the incarcerated, exploitation of the incarcerated and their families through overpriced telephone and video-conferencing services, abuses of power that go unchecked, criminogenic aspects of incarceration, and more. This essay will focus on examining the state of the U.S. penal system then apply principles of Scripture to form a Christian response to imprisonment in the Wesleyan tradition.
