BEYOND THESE WALLS is a moving drama that reveals how several people find themselves lost in drugs, crime, sex and anti-social behavior. While in State Prison they find the transforming power of Christ through two chaplains, one a Catholic Priest and one a Protestant Minister. Their lives are woven together as only God can do to create a beautiful symphony of life and ministry that builds to a hallelujah crescendo and will leave you weeping and praising the Lord. It demonstrates the essence of Ephesians 2:10, "We are God's work of art, created in Christ Jesus." In BEYOND THESE WALLS, you will gain a renewed faith in the kind of historical Christianity manifested in mystical experiences, angels, powerful healings and miracles. You will understand that no matter how stuck you may be in your past with its sin and pain, God works through your experiences; through your sin and pain, and brings others into your path to accomplish His plan of healing Grace (Romans 8:28).
