Overview

Jesus On Death Row gives readers an intimate glimpse of prisons and prison life including accounts of inmates - some on death row - coming to Christ and experiencing new life. The author shares experiences he has had on death row and in the death house on execution day.

It shows readers the guilty and the condemned through the eyes of the Lord Jesus Christ as the last and only hope of so many career offenders, especially those condemned to death, still finding the answer through the words of the Lord. In the ominous world of death row, with its hopelessness and finality, He is the source of real peace and joy to those whom the world has considered unworthy of life.

Jesus On Death Row provides a first hand look at a world of hardness and distrust, with concrete, steel, walls, fences, towers, and razor wire as its decor. In the midst of slamming doors and constant noise there is loneliness and isolation. Cut off from loved ones, offenders are left to ponder the choices they have made in a place where God is transforming lives.
