About the Author

The author, a seasoned coach and advisor with more than 40 years experience in over 180 organizations in North America and Europe, shares his perspective of a truly remarkable program at a 1,250 male inmate penitentiary in South Carolina where he has been volunteering for about two years. The thrust of this effort is based upon the belief that 90% or more of inmates are good people who just made mistakes and screwed up their lives. Treating inmates with respect and as a person of value, when their demonstrated behaviors merit, has created a truly rehabilitative program that is changing lives and preparing these inmates to be productive and good members of society. This engagingly written and charmingly illustrated book takes the reader through the history of this effort with all its' ups and downs in becoming a remarkably successful endeavor. Lee has written a clear description of the remarkable program at Allendale, which should be a model for every penal institution in the country. Allendale is successful because here there is a strong and courageous warden who had the wisdom to significantly involve the inmates in managing their futures. He is indeed a visionary. Judge Joe Spruill, Virginia State Circuit Court, semi-retired Lee has written a very good and accurate description of what we are achieving. Over 100,000 thousand inmate program hours have been conducted since the initiation of the character initiatives last year. Violence has reduced, the overall effect this initiative has positively changed the vast majority of the inmate population and lives are being changed for the good. The days of just warehousing inmates have gone. If we expect a better person to be released back into the communities we must change his character while imprisoned. We are using peer-to-peer programming that works. John Pate, Warden, Allendale Correctional Institution

Format: Paperback
Helpful summary for anyone wanting to learn more about an innovative and successful program for prison ministry. I've heard that all proceeds are going to the construction of a multi-use worship center at this prison.

PS -- I have done ministry at this prison, too.
