The Church of the Second Chance
Jens Soering, who has been in prison for more than 20 years for a murder he claims he didn't commit, shows that figures like Moses, Samson, and Paul were raised to places of honor; despite committing theft, murder, even terrorism. He calls this the 'Church of the Second Chance.' Je presents stories of these biblical outlaws to help solve a social crisis that has been building for over 30 years: the problem of America's prisons. Each chapter begins with a Bible study, goes on to examine a crucial problem besetting our jails and penitentiaries, and ends with an interview that demonstrates how people are working today, in and out of prison, to apply God's word to our own lives and times.
