Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805420029, Paperback)THE JAIL: MISSION FIELD FOR CHURCHES is written by a pastor with a great deal of experience behind bars. He has not spent time as an inmate, of course. He has been a volunteer chaplain in a local jail for a number of years. In this book Adams tells why a pastor is needed for a jail ministry. Then he gives the fine points of how to carry on a jail ministry. He also includes a chapter on how to minister to others who have various relationships with a local jail: the officers, the inmates' families, and others. The jail is truly a mission field for churches. And Tom Adams has prepared this book to help you minister well in local jails.
