About the Book

Gertha Rogers is a multi-talented woman who gave her heart to prison inmates and staff for 25+ years in the Texas prison system, earning the title,

Queen of Prison Ministry.

This timeless heartwarming story will surely become a classic in the literature.

How much we need her and her kind is also placed inside the context of the state and national literature on in-prison programming, re-entry, and rehabilitation – where she has helped pave the way.

A jewel of a story.

About the Author

Goodness, what a privilege to have as friends people like Gertha Rogers.  I hope that in some measure I am judged by the friends I have, that “about the author” is somewhat tempered by the good friends I have had the honor of knowing.

I am a the Senior Clinical Chaplain at the Gib Lewis State Prison in Woodville, Texas (USA), a prison with 2,200 men in all ranges of custody, from trustees to the 800+ plus in our super-maximum high-tech extension.  For 15+ years now.  I have three earned degrees.  One of the great privileges of this position is to get to know the volunteers that come.

I hope this book reaches many, for it is a precious story.
