Publisher's Description

This inspirational book is a collection of true stories laid out in a daily format; one per day for 365 days. Each story will tell about a work of God in the lives of those who have experienced some aspect of prison. A single scripture verse will accompany each writing, pointing to the hope and truth found in God’s word.

While incarcerated, many inmates spiritually hit bottom and come face-to-face with the choices they have made. Thankfully, God uses Christian volunteers, prison chaplains, family members, outside friends, Christian pen pals, and other inmates, to share His love and truth with the lost behind bars. Regardless of how they are offered hope, inmate’s testimonies, along with their daily walk challenges, are moving and inspirational.
You will read amazing stories including that of Brandon, a prisoner who had a prayer warrior mother, and was also visited by a Christian volunteer. Brandon came to Christ while incarcerated, and witnessed constant gang activity behind bars, including preying upon the youth on the outside. Since his release, Brandon often risks his life in his ministry of intervening in the lives of youth who are at risk to become involved in gang activity.
The battle for the souls of inmates is fierce. One female prisoner said, "When I first arrived at prison in 2002, Christianity was openly practiced and Satanic practices were underground. Now it is just the opposite." This inspirational book will remind Christians of their admonishment by Jesus to visit the imprisoned, to pray for them, and to share the gospel with them (Matthew 25:36). These collective, true stories will especially touch those who are uncomfortable with prison ministry, helping them to develop compassion for the shunned souls of society.

    This book was even more than I expected! It is heart-wrenching and heart-warming. Each story is so personal. It is such a good mixture of first-hand experiences of inmates and of people who minister to inmates. It is very personal and helpful to me as I have been in a correspondence prison ministry to inmates for over 30 years. It shows how fragile life can be in a prison situation. Each inmate needs God's protection daily and much prayer! This is such a well-rounded book that whether or not you know someone in prison or not, it will still be very interesting simply because it features such personal stories - and they are always interesting!

    Having lived part of this book makes it really special to me... Seeing that there are so many different people who are impacted by incarceration today in America makes me sad on one hand but glad on the other. The sad part is because there are not nearly enough people who care; this book should help change that. The glad part is to see from those different perspectives or from other's eyes how the Lord impacted them while they were there doing as the Lord directed them, be it in a job or as a minister. It also highlights for me personally that the Lord does work through people to impact the lives of others... Read about me starting on March 22nd and you will understand how much of an impact you can make and how instructive this book will be for you!

    This book is about the work of the Lord among real people navigating life's experiences and being saved to experience full and contributing lives. It is not only about those in the circumstance but also those who the Lord placed in offenders' paths, resulting in sometimes miraculous outcomes for both parties.

    The authors thoughtfully placed scriptures with each of these true stories which helps create a wonderful platform for daily bible study and discussion. And... I really like that the book can be used to help those in similar circumstances to see what is possible when the eye and heart is placed on the Lord. One can see and almost feel how the Lord multiplies the outcomes when those in need meet those lead to help others experience the Lord's grace. This is a superbly authored and unique book. I believe collectors will relish this work which will lead souls to Christ.
