Authors: Dr. M. Salomo-Davies and R. Davies The National Resource Center on Children and Families of the Incarcerated reports that more than 2.7 million children, or one in twenty-eight, have an incarcerated parent in the United States. These children are often pulled into the cycle of drug abuse, violence, and crime themselves, following their parents' footsteps on the path to incarceration. After personally experiencing this unstable social environment themselves and recognizing the transformative power of the gospel to change their own lives, the authors decided to face this issue head-on through a study that combines qualitative research with the personal narratives of at-risk children. Children's Liberation from Incarceration is the result of their work, providing a model for helping the children of incarcerated parents have victory over adversity through the power of the gospel. This book captures both the children's stories and voices while presenting methodology for community, church and government support services that divert them from the prison track. Join the authors in their work to give at-risk children healing, growth, and resiliency through the redeeming work of Christ.
