‘There is no one, no life, no story that is beyond God’s power to love and transform.’
Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
This extraordinary book speaks loudly of hope and reconciliation, of transformation and journeys. Forty prisoners, prison chaplains and ex-offenders tell stories of the hope that they have found, how forgiveness can be discovered in the most unlikely places, and how knowing Jesus changes lives forever. Each faith-inspiring story is accompanied by verses from the Bible, prayers and a thought for the day.
They can be read at any time by individuals or groups, inside and outside prison. Weekly notes to inspire personal reflection and facilitate group discussion are also included, making this book ideal for reading during Lent.
Find fresh hope as you use this book and allow it to help you come closer to the source of all hope – Jesus, the central character in all the stories you will read.
Created in partnership with Prison HOPE and compiled by Catherine Butcher, the communications director for HOPE.
