Prisoners And Pilgrims

Ron Nikkel is a long-time friend of The Community of Aidan and Hilda in Canada and a soul friend to one of our members.  After a life-time's service, including as a prison chaplain, he has written a book about his experiences.  Here are three commendations.  You can buy it from Amazon.

“Pilgrims and Prisoners reminded me of the incredible dedication that Ron Nikkel has made to the cause of mercy, justice, and peace in the world by traveling to hundreds of prisons to unconditionally share the love of Jesus. Pilgrims and Prisoners gives us a glimpse of the power of Jesus to redeem men and women who society has written off. Any reader will be blessed by this book.” —MICHAEL T. TIMMIS, author of Between Two Worlds: The Spiritual Journey of an Evangelical Catholic

“I have traveled with Ron Nikkel to visit prisons on several continents, and he’s one of my heroes. Now he and Andy Corley have served up a rich combination of Jesus-centered wisdom and raw, real-life stories. Jesus emphasized prison outreach in both his first sermon (Luke 4) and one of his last (Matthew 25). I know of no better guides to teach us how to live out that mandate.” —PHILIP YANCEY, author Where the Light Fell: A Memoir

“Ron Nikkel and I walked into prisons in Central America—holes of despair, run by gangs, and for many prisoners, no hope for an exit. It was here I saw Ron light up rooms with his unmistakable understanding, seeding faith and hope. You may never visit a prison, but Pilgrims and Prisoners becomes a personal visit into a world neglected and ignored.” —BRIAN C. STILLER, global ambassador, World Evangelical Alliance
