Item description for Beyond Bars: Looking inside the inside story by Gerard Chrispin...
Overview Hear inspiring and challenging stories from Gerard Chrispin from his involvement with Day One Prison Ministries in England. Read of prisoners gladly accepting Christian literature, hardened criminals listening to the gospel and some being transformed when they choose to follow Christ.
Publishers Description This book arose out of a series of articles which appeared in The Evangelical Magazine, published by The Evangelical Movement of Wales. The author was encouraged to expand and develop the material, to illustrate the prison work started under Day One Prison Ministries and then continued and expanded by DAYLIGHT Christian Prison Trust, in association with Day One Prison Ministries. In demonstrating the power of the gospel to set the prisoners free, this book makes no extravagant or exaggerated claims. It is a real eye-opener, giving glimpses of robbers and rapists, murderers and violent thugs, as well as illegal immigrants and others guilty of white collar crimes. Read of prisoners gladly accepting Christian literature, hardened criminals listening attentively to the gospel, and some prisoners being transformed by the power of the gospel and going on to lead reformed lives that demonstrate the biblical truth that if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. Read also of the heartache of seeing those believed to have been converted to Christ not going on with God. At one point the author asks, How involved is the Christian church in prison and prisoners? The story of this prison work points to ways in which many could respond to the challenge.
