As the prison population increases on a weekly basis, prison ministry programs must have a working blueprint for dealing with the shame, humiliation, hate and loneliness of incarceration at both the adult correctional and juvenile detention/probation levels. Prison Ministry demonstrates how a ministry can adapt Liberation theology to address oppression and bring prisoners into the community of Christ. Author Dennis Price, former prison chaplain, presents a functioning approach to forgiveness and reconciliation, combining pastoral counselling, Christian education, Bible studies and worship to help inmates develop self-esteem and an overall feeling of self-worth through compassion and empathy.
