The authors describe a restorative justice ministry – EXODUS – for inmates in the state of New York. It can lead inmates to repentance, conversion, and personal transformation. Restorative justice/prison ministries at their core are about relationships that build up the possibility for such transformation inside the walls and after the gates close behind the parolee.
