About the Book

The book, Letters from Paul, is a series of letters written by Paul to men in prison. Each man to whom Paul writes has participated in a program called Kairos. Kairos is a prison ministry where residents of correctional institutions are given the opportunity to experience a religious renewal and to accept God's call to a life of Christian witness and service to one another during their stay in the institution and beyond. Paul shares the letters from a two and half year period with you because he believes that, often when he sat down to write a letter to the men, he felt the wind of the Holy Spirit moving him to write thoughts that were not part of his experience. If, in fact, the reality is that the Lord did work through him, then perhaps some part of this book is intended for you.

Paul's letters contain both a spiritual message as well as insight into the life of his family during good and hard times. Most importantly each letter provides an understanding of how Christ's love grows through the Kairos ministry.

About the Author

"Prison Ministry, who would want to do that?" was Paul's thought when asked to serve on a Kairos weekend. The Holy Spirit enlightened him and he served on his first Kairos weekend in 1994. He continues to serve and has recently served as the Rector of Kairos 21 at Buckingham Correctional Center in Dillwyn Virginia.

Christ, Paul believes, has a very special place in His heart for those who have fallen from their horses. After all, when laying flat on your back, you have the opportunity for an unobscured vision of God. Paul, like many men and women all over the United States, live to bring Kairos, a prison ministry of God's love, inside the walls of prisons.
