When you purchase the paperback version of Exiles, the Kindle version is FREE for you to download. All proceeds from the sale of Exiles go to a non-profit the authors have selected that gives academic scholarships to children of inmates. Exiles is a Christian Devotional Book written by inmates for inmates. Exiles will bless inmates and free-world people alike, making its way into both kinds of prisons-spiritual and physical-something we all know well. The practice of having Christian devotions is a way of practicing the spiritual disciplines of quietness and solitude and Bible reading so that a person can live out his or her day with the mind of Christ. Each page of this devotional book represents a day in the calendar year and includes a verse or two of Scripture, three to four short paragraphs about the Scripture applicable to a prison context, then a brief listing for further Bible reading. The authors are pursuing the Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies at the Southwestern Seminary at Darrington, a four-year accredited degree through the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary inside of the maximum security Darrington Prison Unit--all supported and privately funded by The Heart of Texas Foundation (www.heartoftexasfoundation.org). ----- One of the most important spiritual disciplines for followers of Christ is the cultivation of a regular devotional life. This is especially important for those who are incarcerated and working hard to turn their lives around. This is why Exiles: A Prisoner's Daily Devotional is highly unique and appropriate devotional guide written by prisoners for prisoners. The authors provide a healthy balance between solid biblical exegesis and relevant applications sustained from many years behind bars. The additional morning and evening readings complement the lessons and give the reader more support for the biblical teaching they read each day. I have no doubt that the Lord will use this devotional to transform the lives of many "exiles" behind bars. - Stephen O. Presley, Ph.D., St. Andrew's University Assistant Professor of Biblical Interpretation, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary ----- Exiles is a book of Christian devotions written by three men who embraced their gift of faith in Jesus Christ while in prison. Combined, they have already been in prison for 48 years. Two of them have life sentences, and one has a 35-year sentence. They have written this outstanding devotional book from their ongoing confinement behind bars but with the freedom they have in Christ. If you are reading this book while in prison, this devotional was written for you by those who are there with you. Each page teaches you something new about how life in prison does not have to be the same old game. No matter who you are or where you are, you can read Exiles and learn more about Jesus Christ, his care for the prisoner, and the transformative power of his gospel. This devotional book will point you to Jesus Christ like no devotional book I have ever read. - Brenna M. Norwood, Ph.D., The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; The Heart of Texas Foundation
