Christian Library International Distributes Christian Books and Bibles to US Prisons
The mission of CLI is to bring Christ to the imprisoned. Since its founding in 1996, CLI has helped thousands of incarcerated men and women find new hope in the healing powers of Christ. With a small Christian staff and a team of devoted volunteers, CLI maintains a low overhead, ensuring that the bulk of our resources go directly to the prisons we support. Our success depends on the prayers and generosity of individual donors as well as local churches, foundations and Christian publishers.

How to Pray for Your Unsaved Loved Ones
If salvation is the work of God, our first response in seeking the salvation of someone who is lost is prayer to God that He may move upon them. View the complete document here.
A Biblical Basis for Spiritual Fasting
Spiritual fasting was practiced by God’s people throughout both the Old and New Testaments. In the Old Testament, God instructs the people to fast when facing judgment, during hardships, and at certain times of the year (e.g. the Day of Atonement). In the New Testament, we find examples of fasting amid trials and when important decisions were being made. View the complete document here.
CLI Volunteers around the office
CLI has plenty of volunteer opportunities for your church "work day", Christian school, community group, small group or class. From stamping books and tracts to packing books. Most jobs require little training.
Some group volunteers return to review inmate Bible study lessons or respond to inmate letters. We have both one-time and long-term positions. Prison ministry is very rewarding, knowing that every book, Bible or letter has the potential to bless someone eternally.
Schedule your group by calling Jeremy at 919-212-8122. Many groups come in the afternoon or on Saturdays.

Inmate Testimonies - April 2013
“After reading your tract, I prayed to make Jesus my Lord and Savior. I have been reading the Bible for a few weeks now and am really trying to change. I am working on my mouth because I curse a lot. I hope it gets better. I really want to live for the Lord and have a better life!” Inmate Covah, Eastern C.I., Westover, MD
“I am finishing up Our Stories, God’s Glory, and it is truly amazing! I am so thankful to be here in county jail where I can draw closer to my God than where I was at home. I can relate and testify that my God does supply all my needs.” Inmate Anthony, Nacogdoches County Jail, Nacogdoches, TX
“Your booklet called The Four Spiritual Laws saved my life. Please send me your Bible study and any other Christian reading material!” Inmate Robert, CSP, Macon, GA
“What a blessing it was to have just finished this awesome book, Close to His Majesty by David C. Needham. It was very inspiring and breath-taking at every turn. I’ve never read a book where God’s attributes are explained in a practical and easy to understand kind of way. Thank you very much for your time, effort, and commitment to our Lord Jesus Christ, who reigns and lives in our hearts.” Inmate Jose, Norfolk Correctional Facility, Sayre, OK
