The Importance of Restoration in the Reentry Process, Part III

Continuing our exploration of the Biblical teaching on the topic of Restoration, let’s quickly review the major ideas presented in the previous blog.  First, ALL Christians are commanded to proactively demonstrate the identical forgiveness we have received from God through Christ.  As we’ll see, our Lord does not suggest this; He commands it.  Second, there are two […]

The Importance of Restoration in the Reentry Process, Part II

In the previous blog we discussed the Biblical principle of RESTORATION as a primary component of successful reentry and transition.  The conviction was expressed that every mature Christian is called to the work of restoring the fallen.  It is hard work, time consuming and the stronger, healthy Christian who answers the call to link hearts with […]

Reentry and Transition to Civilian Life

Last time I addressed the true nature of recidivism which is by most standards out of control in many states. More importantly is the response IMR has taken in addressing this epidemic not through prison reform, but through the transformation of lives, one life at a time, through the power of Jesus Christ and His […]

Rampant Recidivism and the Christian Response

The term Recidivism is legally defined in most circles as a prison inmate who is released and within 3 years commits another crime, is arrested, prosecuted and sentenced and returns to prison to serve more time.
