The Prison Sermons

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.

a guest speaker to a group of inmates. She and I got to know each other when I
accepted the invitation and went back several times. Though she is a generation

something amazing: men who loved the Lord passionately. I remember one
inmate named Patrick who gave his testimony at the beginning of that first
The Sermons Presented This book is a collection of sermons on needful topics
that I presented to inmates over the course of about two and a half years.
Chapters two and three are my journey to the faith, and in the faith, respectively.
Occasionally, I quote lengthy Bible passages in the notes because I know that
many inmates do not have Bibles in their cells. It is useful for them to have the
relevant verses there with them when they study later. Although I stuck to the
