Recommended Reading

There are hundreds of books that provide a look inside incarceration issues and the people who surround them. The following books are among our favorites, although they do not necessarily match the views of everyone involved in incarceration ministry. The list is not comprehensive; it is meant to provide a vignette of the issues and attitudes present on the topic. If you have a suggestion or comment, please contact us. ¬†We’d love to add it to our list.
