About the Book

Prison Stories is exactly what the title describes. However, not all the stories are within the walls of correctional facilities, some of the stories are accounts of what has taken place outside of the walls, in communities throughout Atlantic Canada. It is indeed a storybook that 'grabs your heart' with emotions of both sadness and surprise. Not only is it a storybook, it is also a textbook as it highlights many valuable lessons learned along the way in correctional chaplaincy ministry.
