Prison to Praise
You, too, can move from Prison to Praise!
Merlin R. Carothers, author of Prison to Praise, is well known throughout the Christian community. His books have sold over 19 million copies, and his unique concept of ‘praise in all things’ brings results that can only be termed miraculous.
“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances for this is God’s will for you!”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Carothers’ seminal work is both easy and enjoyable to read. Many people have called it the most unusual book they have ever encountered, and millions say it changed their lives and introduced them to the solution to their problems.
Written in a conversational style, Prison to Praise pulls the reader into Carothers' life almost immediately with his deeply personal testimony and God-given gift for telling a story. Writing about the day he gave his life to Christ, Carothers included this priceless anecdote:
“Grandfather was deep in thought beside me. I didn’t know it then, but he told me about it later. He was carrying on his own battle with God. For years he’d been smoking and chewing tobacco. Forty years of addiction to the weed had him hooked. Many a time he’d tried to quit, but had been seized with violent headaches and soon was back to chewing and smoking heavier than before.
“Now he was sitting next to me in the meeting making his own commitment. ‘God, if you’ll change Merlin, I’ll give up my chewing and smoking even if it kills me.’ No wonder Grandfather nearly collapsed when I went forward at the end of the meeting to make public the decision I’d made during the singing!
“Years later I was at his bedside when his time came to die. He looked up at me and smiled. ‘Merlin,’ he said, ‘I kept my promise to God.’”
Prison to Praise is not about a prison with bars, but about a prison of circumstances—and how to be set free!
