New Life for Those Behind Bars
The Journey Home, a Bible study by Rev. Leroy Johnson, is blessing those in prison.
The life of incarceration is difficult, and the prospects for prisoners go from bleak to dreadful. Crushed beneath the weight of their sin and fettered by a daily monotony, there's little chance at redemption or a way out of their past.
In The Journey Home, frequent reference is made to individuals who are behind bars now or who have been there before. Drawing on years of prison ministry as well as work in Christian counseling, halfway houses, homeless service, and church planting, Johnson's 12-part Bible study offers hope and God's forgiveness. Basing his lessons on "The Parable of the Prodigal Son" in Luke 15:11-32, he examines the text, noting its relevance in Jesus' day and its contemporary applications to our lives in the 21st century. Questions at the end of the lessons help reinforce the material and prompt further discussion of the material presented.
Do you know someone who's in prison or is boxed in by guilt and shame of some sort? If so, please take a moment to order a copy and send it to him or her. We've heard time and again how this Bible study resonates with those who have bottomed out in life or are doing hard time behind bars.
Single copies of The Journey Home are only $5. You can get a half-priced bundle of 10 for $25. To review this in-depth resource, you can download a FREE PDF. You can find this Bible study by clicking here.
The Journey Home gets to the heart of the matter: we're all prodigals by nature, but God is there—ever ready and willing—to welcome us with open arms and bring us back home.
