An inmate for life, Jens Soering tells stories of prison life that are shocking and inspiring. He confronts us with Jesus's challenge to love not only the least amongst us but those who are perceived as the worst amongst us.
Anyone interested in what goes on behind the walls of our nation's prisons--and in seeing the face of Christ in everyone--will value this authentic, harrowing, and visionary search for redemption.
The subject of a recent profile in The New Yorker Jens Soering has been incarcerated in Virginia since 1990. He is the author of The Way of the Prisoner and An Expensive Way to Make Bad People Worse.
