A seminary behind bars seeks to change Texas prison system
In a solitary confinement unit at a maximum-security prison in Texas, convicted murderer Troup Foster offers spiritual guidance to offenders as a part of a program designed to spark a cultural change in the country's largest prison system.

Foster, 52, is one of 34 offenders in the first class of a university seminary school set up at the state's Darrington Unit.

"A lot of these guys are going home, and the public has to deal with them. If we can change some of those men's lives now and put them on a better path when they leave here, the public is going to be safer," said Foster, who is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

"For me, I am probably going to die here." ...

Just watched a special video on TV by the Brooklyn tabernacle choir who went into the Louisiana State Pen for a program. Various men were interviewed with testimonies of lives changed! A must see!

I would hope these prisoners are getting such material as The Ryrie NAS Study Bible or the MacArthur Study Bible - ESV (hardcover, personal personal size) etc. I don't know if anyone is providing these Bibles? Even the Gideons may be of help. It is good to see that people in prison are getting other information than from Muslims. It would also be good if there were Bibles in Spanish I would think in Texas prisons as well? In any event, we can pray for a good outcome of such programs.
