Incarcerated men and women in more than a dozen prisons around the U.S. have been learning, telling, and using Bible stories…in the prisons, with family members and friends, and outside the prison (when released). They have finished a 7-8 month training and have become certified as BibleTelling instructors. As a part of their training, they receive a solar-powered audio player that holds 255 Bible stories and an entire dramatized version of the Contemporary English Version of the Bible. The men and women are trained to tell God’s story (Bible stories), learn “your story,” share “my story,” and benefit from “other’s stories.”

“The Bible becomes interactive and relevant to each person and can be easily passed on to others.” Free on the Inside prison ministry (The Navigators) and BibleTelling have trained nearly 1000 incarcerated men and women in the last six years.
