God Is Not in the Thesaurus: Stories from an Oklahoma Prison

Front Cover
Forward Movement, 1999 - Religion - 153 pages
These dramatic stories continue the tradition of powerful Christian testimony written from prison. They speak of hope from behind razor wire and steel bars, offering the promise of new life.Bo lives in a prison in Oklahoma. Each of our prisons has a different address. We make them for ourselves, and they hold us captive. But that does not mean we live alone, for we are surrounded by the presence and power of God in Christ.

Page 11 - Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Page 9 - If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it.
