    schema:reviewBody ""The first twenty years of Jim Townsend's life was a saga of abuse and violence stemming from an extremely dysfunctional family and the juvenile correctional institutions into which he had been placed. The pain and brokenness he experienced were never dealt with, and thus, when confronted with a devastating problem in his marriage, his violent and unhealed nature could only deal with the situation violently. On January 31,1948, he was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. He was twenty years old." "The Prisoner tells us about Jim's early life and takes us through continued violence in prison to an astounding change and transformation that led to his release from prison and his subsequent new life as a Capuchin Franciscan Brother of the Province of St. Augustine. This new life has led him back into prisons, but this time to provide a ministry of healing and hope through personal counseling and speaking that has impacted the lives of thousands of people." "Paul F. Everett was the executive director of the Pittsburgh Experiment, an interdenominational ministry of the laity to the business and working community in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania."--BOOK JACKET." ;
