Rodger and his mother, Margaret – both ordained ministers -- were suddenly faced with challenge of truly living, under extraordinary circumstances, the beliefs and principles they preached to their congregations. Bitterness, anger, despair, and hopelessness battled for supremacy over the faith in God that had always sustained the Stevens family. Margaret and Rodger, still living day-to-day exercise in acceptance brought on by Rodger’s imprisonment, have written an inspirational memoir and spiritual guidebook for others who find themselves in the Stevens’ situation – the families of the jailed.
