Devotional Book - 90 Day Challenge: Devotions Designed For Inmates
By Erin Roys
There are 90 devotionals in this book. Each takes a verse and expands on how it applies today, right now, to you as you sit in prison. There is a topical index at the end of the book you can use to search for verses to bring you comfort direct from His word. Each daily devotional has the text on one side of the page with some black lines on the facing page. These are for you to use. Write prayer requests or jot down any specific thought that came to you as you read the Scripture for the day. You can review these later in the year to see how He has been faithful to keep His promises to you.

Prisoners in the Bible
By Zach Sewell
"I have read Prisoners in the Bible once and am planning to read it all the way through again soon. I have gone back to it when I've felt alone, down, and even lost. It has helped me a lot. I liked several parts: How Joseph Handled Temptation, How God Can Use Anyone, Fear in Prison, God's Power to Change a Life, etc. I could go on about what I liked about it, but just know that it's helped me survive!"
--Thomas, Inmate at Federal Prison Camp in Duluth, Minnesota
