Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice—from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time, as seen in the HBO documentary True Justice

“[Bryan Stevenson’s] dedication to fighting for justice and equality has inspired me and many others and made a lasting impact on our country.”—John Legend

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING MICHAEL B. JORDAN AND JAMIE FOXX • Named One of the Best Books of the Year by The New York Times • The Washington Post • The Boston Globe • The Seattle Times • Esquire • Time


Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.

Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.

“Every bit as moving as To Kill a Mockingbird, and in some ways more so . . . a searing indictment of American criminal justice and a stirring testament to the salvation that fighting for the vulnerable sometimes yields.”—David Cole, The New York Review of Books

“Searing, moving . . . Bryan Stevenson may, indeed, be America’s Mandela.”—Nicholas Kristof, The New York Times

“You don’t have to read too long to start cheering for this man. . . . The message of this book . . . is that evil can be overcome, a difference can be made. Just Mercy will make you upset and it will make you hopeful.”—Ted Conover, The New York Times Book Review

“Inspiring . . . a work of style, substance and clarity . . . Stevenson is not only a great lawyer, he’s also a gifted writer and storyteller.”The Washington Post

“As deeply moving, poignant and powerful a book as has been, and maybe ever can be, written about the death penalty.”—The Financial Times

“Brilliant.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer

    I just made it through chapter 5 with tears streaming down my cheeks. I can tell you right now, this book will make you mad, sad, and all the emotions in between. It is written with such great detail, you start to feel like you went to law school! (I have not yet finished undergrad...so don’t feel like you need a formal education to understand.) I IMPLORE people of all races, nationality’s, backgrounds and beliefs to please read this book. It will bury its stories deep down in your soul, and leave you harvesting the fruit of its truth for years to come.

    This is one of the best books I've read! I was so touched by the compassion shared. I'm so in awe of the work that EJI does. Laughed and cried and couldn't put it down.

    This book was so gut wrenching and very well written. I enjoyed both the book and audio book as Bryan Stevenson is the reader. “I am here!”

    In Bryan Stevenson's "Just Mercy", we are reminded that we are all human. That any emotions we might have toward an individual or about a situation, there is another side of that story. He reminds us that every person is worthy of God's grace and mercy, especially those who are the most vulnerable in society. While some see Mr. Stevenson as an apologist for vicious criminals, it is clear that he is devoted to giving everyone their constitutional right to an attorney and a shoulder to lean on in their darkest hours. Many people cannot fathom working so many hours to help someone, only to have them be strapped down and killed in front of you. Mr. Stevenson is an angel from God for these condemned people. This book is a taste of that journey that so few of us would consider ever venturing on. Excellent book
