Chuck Colson tells of the change that came over hundreds of men in a prison in Newton, Iowa. He went there to establish a Bible study group two years ago. Two months later, he went back to visit and he found a bunch of excited men. They swarmed around him with their Bibles. He signed over a hundred of them and listened to their testimonies. When he finished speaking, instead of politely applauding, these men jumped to their feet and chanted “This is my Bible.” “It is a lamp to my feet.”

He asked “How could this have happened?” At least half of these men had been unbelievers, yet the whole prison had been transformed. The staff explained that these Christians told newcomers about their faith and invited them to Bible studies. This is happening all over and the rate of return to prison is dropping. (“Storming the Gates of Hell,” BreakPoint with Charles Colson, April 18, 2003)

If it can happen in prison, it can happen here.
