Reviews - What do our customers think?
Tells of the ongoing work of God's grace and sovereignty  Mar 1, 2007
The word `Watergate' usually brings up negative thoughts like political corruption and national disgrace. For White House-insider Charles Colson, his role in the Watergate saga led to a prison sentence that would become the starting point for Prison Fellowship, an international organization dedicated to taking the gospel of Jesus Christ to inmates, and also serving as an advocate for prison reform.

In God Behind Bars: The Inspiring Story of Prison Fellowship, John Perry opens with some general information about America's prison system, along with a concise review of the Watergate story and the circumstances that resulted in Colson's prison time. Colson became a Christian before his sentence started, and while behind bars he was able to minister to his fellow inmates. Following his release after five months, Colson eventually felt God calling him into full-time prison ministry, and the path to establishing Prison Fellowship began to unfold.

During its 30-year history, Prison Fellowship has experienced tremendous growth while demonstrating its willingness to try new programs and concepts. Some blossomed and prospered for a brief time, and then were ended or channeled into new directions. Others saw rapid and sustained growth. Early discipleship seminars were only able to accommodate 12 prisoners, but the organization soon began developing programs that were able to reach more prisoners, both inside the prison and outside the walls.

Today, Prison Fellowship's ministries, bolstered by thousands of volunteers, reach around the world, and include full-time in-prison facilities that disciple inmates 24 hours a day. Perry does an excellent job of covering the high points, and he does not try to gloss over the low points, such as leadership issues and money concerns. But in doing so, he shows that Prison Fellowship is not the result of the work of a celebrity politician, but the ongoing work of God's grace and sovereignty. - [...]
