Christian-based Program Keep Inmates From Re-offending 02/14/2012

“A controversial program using Christian teachings to try turn around the lives of hundreds of Minnesota prison inmates is working, according to a new report from the Department of Corrections.”

State researchers followed more than 730 former inmates released between 2003 and 2009 and found that the Bible based program reduced prisoners returning by 40 percent.

State officials are hailing the program as a cost-effective success. They say it is a good deal because the state provides the space and the program pays everything else.

The fact is as Paul announced, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth” (Romans 1:16)
