I don't have the gumption to visit prisoners in jail or prison. But reading Rev. Joe Ingle's The Inferno, I made one visit after another with him. His account of Philip Workman's death row experience is non-fiction, yet unbelievably bizarre. Is he guilty of the crime or not? This isn't Law and Order or CSI on TV. Think Franz Kafka. Whether you're an attorney, judge, police officer, state governor, student of the American judicial system, or curious citizen (like me), you'll want to take this "fantastic journey" into Dante's circles of hell-on-earth. Truth is stranger then fiction, indeed.

No one can read this book and still support the death penalty. I was ambivalent and hadn't thought about it much, but this book really got me thinking. It really humanizes death row inmates.

Joe Ingle has written a searing account of death row inmate Philip Workman's life on death row, his multiple dates with the electric chair and the needle, the blatant injustice of his conviction, and Ingle's own descent into the purgatory of Workman's ensnarement. The book is compassionate, heartbreaking, immediate and makes the reader infuriated with the powers that be in the state of Tennessee and beyond. He calls his book a Southern morality tale and Workman's case is suffused with all the vestiges of the Old South, the cronyism, the unthinking thirst for vengeance, and the political pandering. But such a travesty of justice is not exclusive to Tennessee or the South. Ingle, Workman's spiritual advisor, has brought us a cautionary saga that goes beyond head-shaking to a clear indictment of the "killing machinery" that finally murdered, "legally," a man who was innocent of the crime of killing a cop. This is a must read for anyone who thinks they've seen it all with the missteps of the "modern" death penalty.

It is a book that takes one into the depth of Philip Workman's life and opens one to his growth, his suffering, his redemption. The author's journey is described as well, and one gets a real human depth analysis of how the death penalty truly effects life, and how it ending is necessary. One sees the evil in our system, the evil in our society, and the evil that surrounds us as long as we are a death dealing society.

This is an incredible story. You will be left wondering how such a thing could have happened. It is a well-written story of horrifying content. The book is a must-read for those who aren't sure where they stand on the death penalty. It is a must-read for those who are opponents of the death penalty. And perhaps most of all, it is a must-read for supporters of the death penalty. Thank you, Joe Ingle, for having the courage to tell this story.
