About the Author

These pages lead readers behind the bars and into the hearts and minds of those who live there. Since most of the prisoners are serving life sentences with no chance of parole, the atmosphere was a breeding ground for despair. When Warden Cain realized that despondency often leads to violent behavior, he decided to give these men hope in the Person of Jesus Christ.
Cain's philosophy is simple: prisoners are human beings and they deserve an opportunity to know Jesus as Savior. This book bears witness of the power of God to touch hardened hearts and change lives. The documentary style of writing makes these men real to readers and will highlight the command of Jesus to visit those in prison.
Although this facility has undergone a transformation, readers will understand that it is still a prison. Cain must be ready to deal with issues like riots and hostage situations. Not every prisoner has accepted the call of Christ and therefore unrest travels throughout these halls looking for opportunity. The author has included accounts of real-life problems that needed a firm but fair handling. The warden has proven himself capable of dealing with the worst that this prison can give him, yet he never loses sight of the best that he can give these men.
Cain's Redemption will powerfully remind readers that every person is precious to the Lord! -- Joyce Handzo, Christian Book Previews.com
The system is screwed up. The government is screwed up. People screw up. But God is good. With Him, all things are possible. I stayed at Angola for eight days. I ate there, slept there, worshiped with those that worked there, and those that were doing time there. I was so moved with what was going on there, I didn't want to leave.
I'm involved in the prison ministry and write to several inmates, including a handful from Angola. Great men with big hearts and a genuine devoted love for God. Look at how crowed our prison systems are! What the statistics show the reentry rate is. Isn't it obvious we're doing something wrong! I truly believe in my heart, that if all prison systems would adopt what Burl Cain is doing, along with places like, Koinonia House, in Illinois, and other great ministries, we would find a big dent in the cost of our prison system, for we would be truly reforming criminals, instead of slapping a number on them and writing them off. That's just not working...hello.
Hebrew 13:3 "Don't forget about those in prison. Suffer with them as though you were there yourself. Share the sorrow of those being mistreated, as though you feel their pain in your own bodies."
This is a no-nonsense warden who got saddled with the most violent "in-for-life" prison in the country. This book shows some of the best of humanity. I loved this book.
Get the book. Let it speak to your heart. See what God can do. You will hardly believe it.
