Sr. Helen Prejean, in "Dead Man Walking", presents a complex analysis of the death penalty in the United States in terms of religion, class, race, culture and ideology. This essay critically examines Prejean's discussion of the death penalty, and Prejean's understanding of the relationship between religion and society, with respect to the above elements. The paper shows that her integration of social analysis and religious belief renders her Christian commitment "critical" in the sense of the concept of "critical theology" as popularized by Gregory Baum.
