DEEP CONVICTION, a follow-up to Shane’s first life-changing book CONVICTION, is a deeper dive into his amazing journey through a complicated, and often dysfunctional correctional system. This book contains many more true accounts of the people with whom he lived inside the cold, dark walls of several Alaskan prisons.
Shane revisits his early days fishing in Alaska and provides perspective on what led up to the fateful day on a fishing boat in Kodiak, Alaska that changed his life forever.
DEEP CONVICTION is a fascinating read that doesn’t just tell the sad, moving stories of criminals but also asks tough questions of those in charge of the correctional system throughout the USA. Questions that we, the people, all should think about and join Shane in seeking and implementing better solutions to the way the entire system works.
-America has only 5% of the world’s population but 25% of the world’s prison population. How is this possible?
-6 out of 10 offenders released from Alaskan prisons are re-incarcerated within 3 years. Why?
In DEEP CONVICTION Shane introduces us to two notorious murderers in Alaska he met on the inside. He also shares the heartbreaking stories of several other characters in a way that engenders empathy and compassion and offers compelling lessons for the reader to help guide their own life and make better choices so they avoid the hell that is prison life.
Perhaps most powerfully, DEEP CONVICTION further illuminates Shane’s journey to know God and build a faith and conviction that unquestionably saved his life in prison and positively influenced many others.
It is Shane’s most sincere hope that something inside DEEP CONVICTION will touch you to affect change in your life and help others do the same.
