I read about 50-100 books a year…mostly books I have to read as a pastor and a counselor, but sometimes, just because I want to. Perhaps the best book I have read in the last three years was Chuck Colson’s “Being the Body” which is an update and revision of his classic “The Body” (you can buy it here).
In that book, he speaks of the incredible things that Prison Fellowship has been able to accomplish by introducing Christianity to prison systems in Russia, Cuba, Peru and even in our country. In light of reading that, I found this article from Foxnews to be so encouraging. At the same time, the article does show that people will oppose something simply because it’s Christian: Even if it works!
