Course Overview

All of us want to succeed in life. This is especially true for Christian prison inmates who have just been released. One problem they face is making day-to-day choices—something they didn’t have to do behind bars. When they leave prison there are many decisions to make daily. Often this aspect of liberty overwhelms them and they return to crime and eventually to prison. It is estimated that three out of four people who are released from prison return there. The key to success in life for the parolee is the same as it is for each one of us—complete obedience to God’s revealed will.

This study will help you identify areas of your life where obedience is needed so that you can succeed in life.
