Item description for The Prisoner: An Invitation To Hope by Paul F. Everett...

While in prison for a life sentence for shooting and killing his pregnant wife, Jim Townsend experienced a transformation due to God's love and forgiveness, which led to his early release from prison as a Capuchin Brother, who chose to go back to the prisons, this time to provide a ministry of healing and hope to thousands. Original.

Publishers Description
On November 13, 1947, in Uniontown, PA, twenty-year-old Jim Townsend shot and killed his pregnant wife--"a horrible crime that dominated frontpage articles in the region. He was promptly convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. In The Prisoner, Paul Everett explores the first two decades of Jim's life, which comprise a sadly familiar saga of abuse and brutality stemming from his dysfunctional family and the harsh juvenile correctional institutions in which he was incarcerated. Everett shows why, when confronted with a devastating problem in his marriage, Jim's temperament could only deal with the situation violently. However, while in prison, Jim experienced an extraordinary transformation due to God's love and forgiveness. Jim's step-by-step process of healing and redemption led to an astounding change and transformation and resulted both in his release from prison and in a new life as a Capuchin Brother. In this new existence Jim chose to head back into prisons--"this time to provide a ministry of healing and hope that has profoundly influenced the lives of thousands. In The Prisoner, Paul Everett has provided an invitation to hopefulness for all who live in despair; whose lives and circumstances have brought them to the desperation of not knowing where to turn. It tells them that there is a living God who can heal, guide, transform and empower them, regardless of who they are, what they've done.

the prisoner  Nov 1, 2007
An excellent book and a keeper. I have bought it for several of my friends.
The Prisoner an invitation to hope  Aug 11, 2007
A very compelling true story...It's very hard to put the book down. I read the book in 3 days, at work, at home and where ever I could get 10 minutes of spare time.
The Prisoner  Jun 27, 2007
This book is very good. I was skeptical at first, but I realized that the change in the man happened over a long period of time.
A tremendous story  May 5, 2005
This book is a special and important story of redemption and forgiveness. It follows the life of Jim Townsend, from his troubled youth, to his commission of a horrible crime, to decades spent in jail, and finally to a life of promise and hope. The lessons that Jim learns throughout his life help him finally to see his self-worth and prompt him to work on behalf of youth and inmates in this country. I found the story harrowing - and the take-away incredibly meaningful. While Jim's life is dramatic, its messages resonated with me (and, I wager, with all of us): forgiveness, freedom, love, self-worth. I highly recommend this book.
