Alabama Arise Features Life and Death Matters in Anti-Death Penalty Lobbying

Dr. Robert Baldwin’s new memoir Life And Death Matters: Seeking the Truth About Capital Punishment, will be given to every state legislator in Alabama on Thursday, March 26 by the organization Alabama Arise as part of their lobbying effort against the death penalty. A note from Rev. Tom Duley, President of the Board, Arise Citizens Policy Project, and Kimble Forrister, State Coordinator, will accompany the book. From the note:

This book is a gift from Arise Citizens Policy Project. We find that it speaks eloquently on the matter of capital punishment. We hope that it appeals to your heart and mind as it did to ours, and that the information contained therein will inform your decision making on this most important public policy issue.

Dr. Robert Baldwin introduced Life and Death Matters by speaking to a very receptive group of students, faculty and other interested parties at Birmingham Southern College as a featured event in connection with the opening night of the schools’ production of the play Dead Man Walking on January 27. Dr. Baldwin also appeared on the Fox 6 Morning Show in Birmingham and was a guest on popular radio host Don Daily’s show Perspective, airing on stations WNCB, WBPT and WZZK. On January 31, a sizable crowd gathered for a book signing at The Alabama Booksmith in Birmingham. In addition, the Death Penalty Information Center has selected Life and Death Matters as a featured book.

Dr. Baldwin continues to make presentations throughout the state to churches and civic groups. He will be signing copies of Life and Death Matters at Milestone Books in the Vestavia Hills City Cent, Vestavia, AL on February 26 from 6:00 to 7:30 pm.

Life and Death Matters is available directly from NewSouth Books,, or your favorite local or online book retailer.
