Author Kay Baker Details Ordinary People Finding Salvation Through Extraordinary Circumstances
Prison would likely be the last place one would expect to find salvation, yet many people do. Kay Baker's story of a woman sentenced to prison demonstrates that what could be the last stop for some, can instead be the first step into a new life
"I wrote this book," stated Ms. Baker, "to bring hope to the hopeless, encouragement to the depressed, to tell people that Jesus is there for them, and to introduce the unsaved to Jesus Christ."
A portion of all book proceeds are donated to Angel Tree Prison Ministries. This organization offers services to some of the 1.7 million American children whose lives are affected by the abandonment, loneliness, and shame that comes from having a mom or dad in prison.
Proceeds from the book also help support Prison Fellowship Ministries, founded by Charles 'Chuck' Colson. Charles “Chuck” Colson was named as one of the Watergate Seven, and pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice for attempting to defame Pentagon Papers defendant Daniel Ellsberg. He converted to Christianity in 1973, and the following year served seven months of a one-to-three year sentence in the federal Maxwell Prison in Alabama as the first member of the Nixon administration to be incarcerated for Watergate-related charges.
After his release from prison, Colson founded Prison Fellowship. The ministry has promoted pen-pal relationships with inmates. Colson has worked to promote prisoner rehabilitation and reform of the prison system in the United States.
"Readers will benefit from reading this book," continued Ms. Baker, "because first, it is a good "read" and second, they will realize that no matter how difficult or impossible our circumtances are, we have a God who can deliver us from all of them."
