Only more recently, spirituality and religiosity have been hypothesized to be influential for preventing recidivism among returning prisoners (Meckler, 2005). As a result, an increasing cross-party interest has risen to fund initiatives that study how faith-based programming might be influential to reduce recidivism (Lane, 2009; Chaves, 2004; Hodge & Pittman, 2003; O’- Connor & Pallone, 2002). In this paper, the author explores the influence of literature on spirituality, religiosity and recidivism in the US identifying areas for research improvement.
