Bibles for Inmates
We are excited to tell you about our new project for 2018: "Bibles for Inmates!" We would like to get a brand-new "Life Recovery Bible" in the hands of each person who attends our Weekend Discipleship Seminars. What could be a better gift than their very own, brand-new Bible?! Our goal is to purchase at least 150 Bibles. We would like to send 30 copies into each of the five prisons in which we hold seminars. Will you help? Each Bible will cost about $25. Can you give an inmate a Bible this Christmas? Can we count on you?
Many prisoners have never owned a Bible. The Bible that they will receive thanks to your donation could very well be their first Bible. Prisons have rules about what they will accept for inmates. Books have to be softcover and shipped directly from the publisher to a prison chaplain.
We are planning to start by giving inmates who attend our Weekend Discipleship Seminars a free copy of The Life Recovery Bible NLT. This Bible points to God himself as the primary source of recovery. Millions of people have been helped by this Bible, and it comes with articles that provide a fresh perspective on recovery. Help for leaders is provided in a general facilitator’s guide and a step-by-step meeting guide. These offer help to anyone starting or running recovery groups at church or in the community.
