Yes, He came to set the captives free.
This book is both: a personal story and an introduction to faith, both with the intention to give hope to those who are incarcerated or addicted and hopeless.

This book is profound, yet written in a way that someone who is totally terrified of their situation could easily grasp. I believe all jails should be equipped with this booklet so that new offenders will have hope for freedom instead of becoming institutionalized. This booklet could be a very powerful tool in prevention strategies to lower the incidence of re-offending. It is simple, to the point, yet includes a lot of scriptural "meat" that even a spiritual infant could handle.

In Rev. Joaquin's version Adam is not present when Eve sins despite the fact that every translation I could find inclu
