Your life, your choice

R40.00

This book encourages Christian inmates to develop social skills that will help them to reintegrate into society when they are released. They focus on four important factors for becoming socially acceptable: rights, responsibilities, relationships and respect. These skills and values are strengthened by studying the Bible and discussing the message with other believers. The lessons are thought-provoking and challenge inmates to change their ways where necessary. Guidance is given, however, ultimately the choices and decisions inmates make are entirely up to them.
