Crime, Criminals and Redemption
For those deemed unsalvageable, unredeemable, and unworthy of forgiveness.
About the Book
Crime, Criminals, and Redemption is an inmate’s guide to redemption, as it displays the corrective and rehabilitative heart of God. It gives God’s free and incarcerated children a glimpse at what God can do for those we deem unsalvageable, unredeemable, and unworthy of forgiveness. To give you an example, in Matthew 27:15-26, Barabbas was indicted for murder. Yet in Matthew 27:21, the jurors voted to let him go. There are other instances, such as Moses’ manslaughter in Exodus 2:11-15, Peter’s assault with a deadly weapon in Acts 9, and let’s not forget the prostitute that wasn’t charged with child endangerment in 1 Kings 3, to name a few.
Though not an exhaustive work, the book does provide several biblical accounts of criminal activity while giving readers a bird’s eye view into the mitigating circumstances surrounding each crime, thus affording readers an opportunity to draw their own conclusion of redeemability. It also discusses the sentencing, or lack thereof, that took place after the crime.
The objective of the book is to help inmates take responsibility for their actions while simultaneously doing the head and heart work needed to receive redemption, and quite possibly, release.
Each chapter has a scripture reference, teaching, and redemptive prayer. It also has a section devoted exclusively to confession which gives inmates an opportunity to align their words with God’s and not with the system.
