Remember the Prisoners by Rev. Joaquin R. Larriba


Remember the prisoners

"Remember The Prisoners" is a brave and undiluted transparency chronicling the events in the life of a man, like so many others, who's fears and insecurities lead him far from home. Alone and imprisoned, he ultimately finds freedom in the very place designed to represent its forfeiture. There, The Holy Spirit would lead him on a courageous journey of redemption and reveal to him the true identity of The Son of God. 
This book has the ability to bridge the gap between the incarcerated and the loved one(s) left behind by affording a glimpse into the heart of a rescued soul. There is hope for the prisoner and this book shares that hope through good old-fashioned story telling and a scholarly approach to scripture. Revelatory insight brings a fresh interpretation to the Christian world view in a time such as this.

Sample text:

If you are reading this, it’s because you’re unsure and scared. Your freedom has been taken away from you, and you have no idea what the future holds. For some of you, it’s your first time in jail. For others, you could be facing prison time—time away from your family and friends, girlfriends, boyfriends, husbands, or wives. This is time you can never get back. For the rest of the world, things go on and continue day in and day out. But for you, time stands still. Some of you are lucky enough to make phone calls and receive mail. Others aren’t so lucky. Their people won’t accept the phone calls or are so fed up with them that they won’t write, cutting them off altogether.

Those of you who are lucky enough to make phone calls and get mail get a boost of hope by connecting to the outside, but the end result is always the same—and that hope nevertheless fades as doubt and fear come creeping back into your mind. Is he or she really being faithful to me? Who is taking my place as mom or dad? Who is with my girlfriend or boyfriend, or husband or wife, while I’m stuck rotting in here?

Yes, fears and doubts always come creeping back in because you know friends and family have asked you time and again to stop drinking, drugging, doing crime, and cheating on them. Oh yes, doubt and fear will certainly return because, quite honestly, that is what you deserve—and you know it.

So why are you still reading this? I’ll tell you why: because you’re looking for hope, searching for something to give you peace and assurance in your time of need and separation. You’re looking for something that can change your circumstances and grant you favor—something to plug that ever-widening hole of despair. Good, then. There is hope for you after all. Keep reading.

Everyone who ends up in jail says to himself or herself, “How did I end up here?”
