Life’s Grace

post date: December 27, 2007
We received a letter from a prisoner in California named Rocky. After reading An Anchor for the Soul, he wrote a poem called "Life’s Grace” and sent it to us.

This poem captures a sense of what it is like to try to live for the Lord in prison. There may be no darker spot on earth than the inside of a prison cell. That’s why seven years ago we started giving away copies of An Anchor for the Soul through a partnership with Prison Fellowship and Good News Jail and Prison Ministries. Since then over 350,000 copies have gone to jails and prisons across America, and we have received over 10,000 letters from prisoners like Rocky. Last June we opened the Anchor Book Depot in Chicago with an initial stock of 50,000 copies of the book. Since then we have given away over 8000 copies, mostly to prison ministries, but also to military ministry, to crisis pregnancy centers, and to other front-line ministries for the Lord.

Thank you for praying for us and making this ministry possible through your generous gifts.

And thank you for caring for prisoners like Rocky whose lives have been changed through the Good News of God’s love.

In the book of Proverbs, King Solomon left us a treasure trove of practical principles for daily living. The ardent pursuit of wisdom is every Chistian’s calling! Wisdom “is a tree of life to those who embrace her. Those who lay hold of her will be blessed.” (Proverbs 3:18)
