THE STORY BEHIND THE BOOK
Behind the wire is an expression used by inmates doing time in prison. But you don’t have to be physically incarcerated to be a prisoner. Freedom isn’t just about a physical location, it’s a spiritual condition. There’s an invisible prison that holds many in its grip and Jesus is the way out.
For the prisoners of physical and invisible prisons, Behind the Wire is an invitation to discover the path to true freedom. It’s the story of Scott Highberger’s journey from the prison yard to the pulpit. It is
true restoration through the Word of God.
Highberger shares how selfish decisions lock us up and how acts of obedience to biblical principles can set us free. Highberger’s story is raw and real. 35 arrests, 8 felony convictions, and 5 prison sentences set the stage for Jesus to teach Highberger to live beyond the wire of selfishness, criminal activity, and failure. Join him on his journey from prisoner to pulpit.
