‘Intuitive’, ‘Insightful’ and ‘Interesting’ are three adjectives that adequately describe this latest text by Dr. Lorne K. Freake. He offers here, another timely contribution to the ministry of correctional service chaplaincy. This text is not only applicable to volunteers who minister ‘inside the walls’ of correctional facilities. It is also for those who minister ‘outside the walls’ in the community in the continuum of pastoral care, during reintegration. The text is useful for all correctional chaplaincy ministry volunteers, for beginners as well as those who are seasoned in ministry.
In this text, Dr. Freake balances theory and application. Without a doubt, this volume is an important and practical contribution to the field of corrections.
