Product Description


Formerly known as America's bloodiest prison the 18000 acres that comprise Louisiana's Angola State Penitentiary are now home to 5000 inmates a full range of seasonal crops a 9-hole golf course yearly rodeos a Bible seminary a museum and much more. All of this came into being at the behest of Warden Burl Cain who is now the longest-standing warden in the history of Angola prison. Under his leadership the inmate population of 5000 has gone from regular knife fights to Bible studies. Cain is a strong believer in the ability of the gospel to turn the most incorrigible of sinners into productive moral citizens. Because eight out of ten prisoners are serving life sentences without parole at Angola Cain has taken upon himself the task of making the lives of these prisoners productive and educational. Through a partnership with New Orleans Baptist Seminary prisoners have the opportunity to get a bible degree and even be transferred to other prisons as a missionary. The Angola phenomenon has been covered by such media outlets as Time Magazine Christianity Today and in the award-winning film documentary The Farm: Angola USA. Author Dennis Shere combines his background in journalism and law to bring readers this account of redemption and life change in the most unlikely of places: a maximum security prison.
