Description

'Our calling as Chaplains is to listen; to sit where they sit and allow them to tell us what they will.' Who are the people that end up behind bars? What led them to this place and what do they care about in life? Katy Canty unlocks the experiences of prisoners, shedding light on the way a chaplain cares for the convicted. Recounting the true stories of those she's served, Katy gives a raw and authentic account of prison-life. Her stories might shock you, surprise you, and open your eyes to an unfamiliar world. With a compassionate and humble approach, Katy walks alongside those on the inside. And she reveals the most important realities of all - the depth of God's love and forgiveness and the possibilities of change with Him.

'You can always tell when someone knows what they’re talking about. Katy’s book is engaging, reflective and wise, but that’s because it is rooted in years of experience as a chaplain - years of working and walking alongside prisoners and prison staff, years of understanding and being present in an institution. As the Diocese of Liverpool’s Dean of Sector Ministry, Katy has made this experience available to hundreds of other chaplains - and now it’s available to you, too, though this book. I commend it very highly, and I continue to thank God for Katy’s faithfulness and commitment, both in living this ministry and in sharing its lessons with others.' ~ Paul Bayes, former Bishop of Liverpool

'No day is ever the same in prison despite the routine and order. Katy demonstrates in this book that prison life is varied and complex and ministering into this context is challenging. Katy does this by telling stories about the people she spent time with and walked alongside in her ministry as a prison Chaplain – real life people come into focus and we get to know them in a way that is gospel-like. As we glimpse into the lives of those Katy has met in prison we pause and are able to reflect on how we might know more about our God who knows and loves each of us in all our beauty and brokenness.' ~ Rev Canon Dr Ellen Loudon, Director of Social Justice & Canon Chancellor, Diocese of Liverpool

'The role of a prison chaplain is so very valuable and most often gets little recognition. They can feel hurt, abused and used. This book tells how Katy kept going, praying and giving, doing what Jesus asked us to do in Matthew 25:39 “When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?”. Katy looked beyond her own self and dedicated her life to helping those that the world so easily rights off. I know with my own life: when nobody cared, Jesus cared and showed it through people. This is exactly what Katy has been doing. I would recommend you read this thought-proving book and to pray for our chaplains. Thank you, Katy.' ~ Gram Seed, author, CEO & Founder of Sowing Seeds Ministries
