Free On the Inside is a spiritual classic. Written from a deep Christian faith and a passionate love for Jesus, it offers hope and concrete guidance for how to survive a season of incarceration with your soul not only preserved but transformed. This book describes how a prison cell can become a monastic cell, how imprisonment can be a time of spiritual rehabilitation, and how those who are incarcerated have a sacred lineage with prisoners in the Bible who found God within their captivity. Sr. Greta Ronningen offers a spiritual path for those imprisoned. She shows how the traumatic roots of destructive behavior can be healed; how wrongs can be forgiven; how broken relationships can be restored; and how prayer and spiritual practice can transform a prison sentence into an encounter with God. With Sr. Greta’s compassionate heart and skillful guidance, one can discover how even jails are holy ground.
