Your incarcerated relative or friend is facing daily physical and spiritual perils. Help him out with this unique daily Christian survival guide (browse through it now using Google Preview above).
Send him a paperback edition and buy another (or an e-book edition) for yourself. Both of you will be refreshed daily by the morning and evening Scripture selections (KJV) as he gains relief from the despair and discord surrounding him. He will learn of God’s eagerness to bless him, restore him, and make him a channel of supernatural grace to other inmates.
Daily Light on the Prisoner’s Path will show him how to: Receive God’s full pardon, forgiveness and acceptance, along with a new identity as a loved son of the Father, and a positive sense of purpose and expectation, Repulse the spiritual and emotional assaults of the enemy, Find resources to overcome boyhood issues or abuses that may have led to his criminal activity, and Use spiritual authority, led by the Holy Spirit, to supernaturally transform the dark atmosphere (and people) around him.
There is no other comprehensive Christian resource like this available for men behind bars. Now Christian parents, pastors, chaplains, prison ministries, spouses, other family members and friends can give men living in confinement a life-restoring companion for use every day along their often-perilous prisoner’s path.
Four Important Truths About God and You
God has followed every step of your sad path from youthful delinquency or deviancy all the way to this human stockyard where you must now live herded behind a razor wire fence, stripped of your identity, tagged with a number, culled and corralled by handlers who care less about your welfare than whether you step out of bounds.
Despite knowing all the facts about you (including what you think about him), God has never stopped caring about your welfare. Even if you've deliberately done very bad things, he still wants to see you restored. Whether you're already doing time in jail or prison or are waiting to be tried, sentenced or transferred, God knows how bad (or good) things may yet get for you.
God wants to bring you through whatever lies ahead, because he can change whatever lies ahead. He can also change you. If you're willing to let him lead you, he has an amazing path of faith, hope – and restoration – for you to walk.
God really can improve your current situation, give you true peace of mind, self-respect and a new positive outlook on the future (see Psalm 146:5-9).
God still wants you to become one of his forgiven, blessed sons. Do that and then he will be able to help you get through the rest of your time purposefully and safely. Does that interest you?Then keep reading and step onto the path of faith and hope!
J. R. Woodgates graduated from Northwestern University in 1975 with a degree in broadcast journalism, then enjoyed a long radio career, internationally for 27 years at the Voice of America, locally in Washington, DC for 13 years at WETA part-time.
In 2006-7, Woodgates experienced nine months as a federal prison inmate, having pled guilty to a single charge of child pornography possession.
The formal process of church discipline and restoration Woodgates went through, and the surprising depth of Christian fellowship he enjoyed behind bars, were life-changing. As an advocate for restorative justice, he now wants inmates and convicts to learn about and experience for themselves the relief, restoration and empowerment they can enjoy as repentant, forgiven, and blessed sons of the Father.
Until 2009, Woodgates was a lifelong Episcopalian (a "preacher's kid"). Today, he is a founding member of the Anglican Church in North America.
