The inmates of Natrona County Detention Center have painful stories, filled with substance abuse, violence, broken relationships, and risky lifestyle choices. Injured by their pasts, their pain drives them to continue making bad decisions. Many of them can see no way out of a cycle of self-destruction.
Volunteer jail chaplain John F. Lutz, Jr. offers inmates a solution through Christ. In a series of moving stories, Lutz describes how inmates' lives changed by asking God for spiritual healing and forgiveness. The men he ministers to-Andrew, Kenny, Bill, and others-all share difficult and challenging lives as young men, and are all transformed through a renewed relationship with Christ.
Through each man's inspirational story, Lutz reveals what it truly means to be Created in the Image of God, and why this profound truth is so important in everyday life. Using simple language and Scripture, Lutz guides both inmates and readers to a new understanding of God, and how to ask Him for spiritual healing.
