Product Description

Endorsed by Chuck Colson - "This may well be the definitive book on prison ministry. Fascinating insights about the prison culture and how to reach it. Mandatory reading for everyone in corrections and for Christians who care about the commandments to visit prison." For most Christians, prison culture is like visiting a foreign land, and the thought of ministering in prison to those incarcerated is an intimidating prospect. This book will impower any pastor, educator, or lay leader in doing effective prison ministry by providing a thorough "inside-out" view of prison life. Author Lennie Spitale offers a unique and qualifying vantage for writing about prison culture and prison ministry. As a young man, Spitale served a prison sentence for an armed robbery that was later reduced to assault and robbery. Two years after his conversion to Christianity, he began conducting a weekly Bible study in a local jail.

    I had a couple of months to wait before starting prison ministry while my application went through the County Sheriff's Department. During that time I decided to buy this book and I'm glad I did. My uncle performed prison ministry years ago and he didn't have a positive experience. This book made me realize that there is a big difference between going solo (which was my uncle's case) and going in with another fellow minister, which is what I do. The book is written by an author who not only did time inside the prison as a prisoner, but who has also spent decades as a successful solo prison minister. He gives different outlooks on prison ministry, such as going solo, being with another minister, group ministry, women's ministry, and the perspective of prison life from both the prisoner's and minister's point of view. Once you read this book, it will help you understand why some prisoners act the way they do and so you don't take it personally. It's their way of life and what they have to do to survive their environment. With that said, my experience in prison ministry has been positive and is truly a blessing. If you have a heart for prison ministry, read this book and gain the knowledge of the prison culture so you can not only understand what is going on around you but will help keep you focused on the mission, which is teaching God's children His word and reach those who are inaccessible to most.

    A must read for all prison/jail ministry volunteers. I am finishing up now and then my wife. The book greatly highlights the need for volunteers and how fertile these ministries are for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Great job Lennie!
