In the book’s last chapter, Stevenson meets a woman who was changed by the comfort of a stranger following the murder of her grandson. The woman tells Stevenson a story from the bible where an adulterer is brought to Jesus. He says, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” Jesus saves her, forgives her, and urges her to sin no more. After recounting the story, the woman says she comes to the courtroom daily to catch some of the stones that people cast at one another, repaying a kindness shown to her by a stranger. She then tells Stevenson that he, too, is a stone catcher.

The book “Just Mercy” explores the work of author Bryan Stevenson, a criminal defense attorney who dedicated his life to fighting for social justice. As a voice for those who would otherwise have none, Stevenson saw young, poor minorities become victims of the criminal
justice system. He was appalled at the system’s blatant disregard for the clear impact of trauma on these young people and the court’s lack of compassion.
