There are around 8,000 people incarcerated in Scotland. For 40 years, Prison Fellowship Scotland has been working with prisoners and their families, providing practical help and care, and sharing the good news about Jesus. 40 Years Behind Bars tells the stories of the work of Prison Fellowship Scotland, from the perspective of the people closest to the work prisoners, volunteers and prison workers, amongst others.
These uplifting firsthand accounts give voices to many who are unheard, and an insight into the real difference God makes in the lives of those trapped in cycles of addiction and abuse. From weekly groups where anyone and everyone is welcomed, to the Sycamore Tree course, encouraging victim awareness and restorative justice Prison Fellowship Scotland, and other Prison Fellowships around the world, show the love of God in a tangible way to prisoners and their families.

The voices of the various parties in this book tell a powerful story of Gods love and grace and the difference His love and grace make. Listen for yourself and be inspired.-- Norm Allen (Founder and President of Touchstone Ministries)
What a treat to listen to many stories of Gods work. Grace is always amazing but reading accounts like these leads one to the conclusion that some testimonies highlight more than others the power of sin to ruin but where sin did abound, grace does much more abound.-- David Meredith (Mission Director, Free Church of Scotland, Inverness)
This is an informative book marking the first forty years of the work of Prison Fellowship Scotland. I found it encouraging that a hundred volunteers, two staff and a number of local prayer groups support this ministry to 8,000 prisoners in Scottish prisons. Prisoners are hearing of Christ with some now trusting in Christ.-- D. Eryl Davies (Elder, Heath Evangelical Church, Cardiff)
for Gods gospel to do its work, for Gods dynamite to explode in lives and to bring about a new creation, it must be shared. What an encouragement to read in this book the testimonies of lives redeemed and renewed through the gospel.-- Garry Brotherston (Minister, Bishopbriggs Free Church, Glasgow)
be aware that these voices and stories might just turn your world view upside down, make you thinking differently about faith and restorative justice and perhaps even transform you, just like the stories of Jesus do.-- Yvonne Lyon (Musician, songwriter and recording artist)
