The prison world is one that is largely hidden from our view, secret and removed. Part of the reason for this secrecy may be a fear that we will discover something of ourselves in those in prison. In Inside Faith, William Noblett attempts to bring the secrecy to light through the stories of individuals, and to bring to view something of the ministry of chaplains, and others, in a complex, emotional and sometimes violent environment.
Taking the form of short reflections, William Noblett explores real situations that arise in prison life and offers theological insights, along with prayers and narratives that can be used in a prison, liturgical, or house-group setting.
Inside Faith is an invaluable resource book for anyone wishing to know more about prisons, and prison ministry, as well as all those involved in more formal chaplaincy work.
'If you've ever wondered what life was like inside a prison, step inside the pages and the prayers of this book.' From the foreword by Rt Rev James Jones, Bishop of Liverpool and Anglican Bishop to Prisons.
'I doubt ... whether I will ever come across a book as brilliant and disturbing as this work by William Noblett' -- David Hope, Baron Hope of Thornes
