This thesis is a reflection on the development of spiritual capital, using an intensive case study of the (Christian) community of faith in Acacia Prison. This faith community is highly unusual and perhaps unique. During the time of this research, the Acacia chaplaincy department was responsible for introducing in-prison restorative justice to Australia in the form of a programme called the Sycamore Tree Project (STP). This study paints a vivid picture of the development of spiritual capital within a prison environment, contributes to theory of community, and firmly positions STP in the restorative justice world.
