Leading Criminal Justice Ministry: Bringing Shalom offers a practical approach to beginning a church- or association-based criminal justice ministry. This resource includes information on: rules and regulations of a jail or prison; ministry options inside jails and prisons; ways to minister to family members and victims;
aftercare ministries to reduce the number of those returning to prison; how to develop a ministry team and plan; and how to discover and train volunteers. The subtitle, Bringing Shalom, reminds us that biblical justice is more than punishment and peace is more than he absence of conflict. The Hebrew concept of shalom refers to well-being, a condition of “all rightness.” Shalom defines how God in His love intends for people to live. (publisher’s description)
