Overview

Doing Time: Finding Hope at San Quentin is a personal account of the author's ten years of prison ministry-preaching, teaching, and simply visiting the men in the cellblocks at San Quentin State Prison. Through regular interaction, the author experienced firsthand the wide range of men there, from drug addicts to lifers. Despite the hardness of "doing time," they demonstrate a faith and honesty that profoundly impact his life. He becomes deeply touched by the genuine spirituality of countless prisoners and their genuine remorse for their sins.

In addition to interweaving his own story with those of individual prisoners, the author opines on a corrupt penal system that is in the hands of management that is accountable to no one. The result is that punishment, not rehabilitation, permeates the correctional system.
