Summary At a time in his life when most people retire, Link felt called to serve the Church and to aid the men that his profession normally put behind bars, ministering healing and forgiveness to murderers, thieves, and what many would call the least of society. This is a book about the value of human life, and about the transformative power of friendship and compassion. He makes the case for adding our own unique gifts to help the least of these, our brothers and sisters from all walks of life.
