Product Description

He tried to help some friends--and it made him a felon. Surprised by a baffling criminal charge after helping some friends with a business loan, Bo Mitchell--successful businessman, church founder, and chaplain for the Denver Nuggets--inexplicably wound up in federal prison. As the same time his wife, Garu, struggled with a sudden brain illness. Facing a life that didn't make sense, Bo paced his cramped cell, pleading, "Why, God?" Only God knew that Bo was trapped in his own inner prison, and He longed to set him free--even if it took steel bars to do it. Paperback.

Publisher's Description

Grace Behind Bars shares the true and dramatic account of how Bo Mitchell, businessman and chaplain for the Denver Nuggets, inexplicably ended up in federal prison only to find God’s true freedom behind bars. Ironically, it’s in a six-by-nine-foot cell that God begins to free this driven Christian leader from his prison of performance and success. In the end, Bo realizes that God’s love is a gift, not something he must earn.

But there’s more to the story: Just before Bo enters prison, his wife, Gari, becomes incapacitated by a brain illness and enters her own prison of clinical depression.

Readers will see how the couple struggled together as their world fell apart, yet ultimately grew closer to each other and God behind the bars of their trials. This story will not only inspire and encourage readers, it will show them how they, too, can find spiritual freedom in life’s “prisons” if they choose to see God’s hand in their lives.

    Grace Behind Bars is a candid look at one man's journey through prison and how pride came before his fall. It was fascinating to read how Bo and Gari didn't become bitter about how he was treated for his unintentional crime, but rather they saw it as a lesson from God and were always open to learning what God wanted them to learn through the experience. I liked getting little snippets of Gari's perspectives at the end of the chapters. I also liked how Bo related the lessons he learned while in prison to how they could be applicable to everyone, although in his speech he geared it to men. A lot are still great tips for everyone, regardless of gender. Their story wasn't that relatable for me, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

    This book is about someone who was inauthentic and with GOD he became GOD. He was unbreakable and he became breakable with the LORD. Bo was non-genuine and became very genuie with the LORD. Bo was a talking Christian but became a walking - talking - eating - breathing - living - dying - carry the cross every day Bible believing Christian when he met the LORD his SAVIOR - 0h my goodness and how, and what he does is goosebumps, churn your stomach with excitement - you could just hear the Angels singing when this one got saved - for in the Bible it says that the Angels sing when even just one soul is saved. AMEN....What Bo does with his salvation is wonderful - and I wont tell you what he does - you have to read for yourself - it is so worth the read.......I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
