True Transformation

“God Behind Bars,” by Nancy Hastings Sehested, September-Octo­ber 2007) was a very good article. As one who’s been there, I can assure everyone that the love of God is powerful in prison. I’ve never sensed such power in any church service—before or since. Most of the prisoners are very receptive to faith-based programs and have a hunger for them. I firmly believe that if more were available, the rate of prisoners re-offending would drop in half.
