This edited volume considers the impact of incarceration on the African American community and the biblical mandate for an intentional response from the church. The book features model ministries that address incarceration, prisoner reentry, and the care of their families and includes strategies for a political advocacy ministry around issues in criminal justice reform.

With contributors who include scholars, ministry practitioners, pastors, and formerly incarcerated individuals, this unique resource offers a paradigm for "prisoner ministry" that goes beyond traditional worship and Bible study programs to create an authentic relational encounter not only with prisoners but with their families, from the time of incarceration to the transition back into home, church, and society.
