Upcoming Prison Book – Stories Needed!

If you know an inmate/ex-inmate, minister to one, work with one, or are one, and you have a short "God story" that you would like to share, please let me know!

I am contracted with AMG Publishers to co-write an upcoming book in their "Battlefields and Blessings" series of books. The subtitle is, "Stories of Faith and Courage from Prison”. The book will be released in the fall of 2012. It will have 365 devotionals, each 350-400 words and one scripture verse. (If you need more words to tell your story accurately, you may have several consecutive devotionals.)

You DO NOT have to do the writing, but you are welcome to. Also, names and locations can be changed.

Please submit your stories ASAP. Deadline is Feb. 29, 2012, but the sooner I receive them the better chance you have of getting a slot in the book.

If you have a good true “God story” about any aspect of incarceration that you feel led to share, please email me, thru my website.

Subject ideas include, but are not limited to:

• Finding God behind bars
• Beginning a ministry while incarcerated
• Leading another inmate to the Lord
• Witnessing a divine miracle in jail/prison
• How God changed your life after incarceration
• Your involvement in jail/prison ministry as a volunteer
• “God moments” for staff members/employees of prisons
• Growth in the Lord as a family member or friend of an inmate

AMG Publishers has final say concerning which stories are selected, and stories may be edited for clarity. AMG will provide a copy of the book to those whose stories are included.

A release form will need to be signed (I will provide it).

Thank you!
