The Prison Sermons
Xulon Press, 2007 - 268 sivua
The Prison Sermons are a collection of inspirational messages delivered by the author to inmates in Texas prisons. Drawing heavily from Scripture and occasionally from great classic Christian writers like Oswald Chambers, St. Augustine, Andrew Murray, Watchman Nee and C.S. Lewis, the sermons reveal the purpose of God's law to both proclaim God's holiness and righteousness and to make us aware of our need for a Savior. They show how God's perfect justice requires that sin be punished wherever it is found, how this truth leaves us with God's mercy as our only hope, and how the mercy of God is obtained through faith in Jesus Christ. The sermons address such important truths as God's hatred of racism, true and false conversions, indwelling sin within the believer, spiritual warfare, the Signs of the Times, and dealing with the sinful nature (the flesh) as the only sure way to prevent recidivism. For more than six years, Rick Davis has served as a district judge in Brazos County, Texas. He and his wife, Carolyn, are Texas Aggies, and have six children. Before working as a judge, he worked as a lawyer. Prior to that, he worked as an engineer at NASA in Houston, Texas. Rick became a Christian during a crisis in his college years. He loves the Lord and loves spending time in the Word and reading great books. About two and a half years ago, the Lord opened a door for him to be a guest preacher in a prison in Huntsville, Texas. While a little apprehensive at first about how the inmates would treat a judge, he learned that many in prison have a deep hunger for the Word. He has been back to prison several times, and loves bringing messages of hope and encouragement to society's outcasts.

Indeed, some of the inmates in prison have never had a mother to speak of. On more than one occasion, I have seen her lead a group of inmates in singing "Happy Birthday" to another inmate who has never had anyone sing it to him in his ...
... and the many forks in my own road. I know in my heart of hearts that, but for the grace of God, I could be right there among them. We are all felons at heart. Some of us have never acted on our evil, felonious thoughts.
The report also stated "The defendant commented that he has other children with other women, but he regretted that he was unable to remember any of their names and admitted that some of the children he has never met.
I never know who will be in attendance at the meetings. A man might show up for chapel who had never attended before, and it might be the only time I ever speak to him. The gospel is usually preceded by a discussion of the law of God.
