Item Description...
Doing Time: Finding Hope at San Quentin is a personal account of the author's ten years of prison ministry-preaching, teaching, and simply visiting the men in the cellblocks at San Quentin State Prison. Through regular interaction, the author experienced firsthand the wide range of men there, from drug addicts to lifers. Despite the hardness of "doing time," they demonstrate a faith and honesty that profoundly impact his life. He becomes deeply touched by the genuine spirituality of countless prisoners and their genuine remorse for their sins. In addition to interweaving his own story with those of individual prisoners, the author opines on a corrupt penal system that is in the hands of management that is accountable to no one. The result is that punishment, not rehabilitation, permeates the correctional system.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a rare and powerful glimpse inside a little-known world  Mar 7, 2008
Dennis Burke has captured the "soul" of San Quentin in this moving and
provocative exploration of the minds and lives of the men who struggle daily
to find meaning behind the walls of our massive, oppressive, and unforgiving

He tells the story of San Quentin, and more than that, the story life in
prisons everywhere, as only an insider can do. It takes at least a decade in
the bowels of the monster to understand it and to fathom the souls of those
who have been--or may be--consumed by it. And Burke has "done his time" there.

In the end, this is an inspired and inspiring account of the human condition--replete with
telling insights into the rainbow of hate, violence, intolerance, racism,
cruelty, despair, intimacy, strength, weakness, humor, love, and hope that
define us all.
