“Prisoner Sam” has little to do with his time. He eats, talks with other prisoners, and sleeps. One thing he can do is read, and he’s likely to read whatever he can get his hands on – including Christian books. Do you think it’s hard to share the gospel with others? “Prisoner Sam” is different. He has time on his hands, and after reading about the Lord’s desire to save sinners, some are repenting and turning to Christ, giving testimony to the Lord’s saving grace and transforming power.
What we do: We’re sending one book per one dollar donated to partner ministries for free distribution.* Our ministry book distribution partners include Prison Book Project, CLI Prison Alliance, Love Packages, Mission Cry, and OM Ships. Upon arrival at one of our partner ministries, the books are divided up into cartons containing a variety of titles that are shipped to prisons all around the country, or distributed to individuals in need by our overseas partners. If you have a preference regarding which title is sent (any title from our Evangelism Resources section), and to which ministry the books are sent, please let us know in the notes upon checkout.
Some Facts (Gleaned from The Prison Book Project of Titusville, Florida):
- The re-incarceration rate after two years for the general prison and jail population is 85%. However, where Christian material is available, the rate of re-incarceration drops to 17%.
- Chaplains report that each book sent to a prison is read by up to thirty prisoners. Outside of third-world countries, reach like that, with one book, is unheard of.
- “Prisoner Sam” may never be able to thank you on this side of eternity, but your gift to him is worth more than words can express.
