If Jesus were alive in bodily form today, I’m convinced he would spend his time in jails, prisons, and ghettos.

“About two weeks into my county jail stay after being arrested for my 4th DWI, I knew I was looking at four to 10 years in prison. I immediately determined that I was going to turn this into something good, and decided I would write two handwritten pages a day about my life struggles with alcohol and drugs, and the everyday experiences of incarceration. I further decided that I would write the exact same amount every day for one year, and that is exactly what I did,” Jimmy Jack says.

In “Jimmy Jack: The Alcoholic Teacher” (published by LifeRich Publishing), Jack narrates his journey and describes how his prison experience literally saved his life. He tells how he, as a genuine Christian with real-time faults and attitudes, was simply trying to survive and come out of the horrible situation a better person through the transforming power of God who had predetermined plans of enlightenment, protection, purpose and survival.

“If Jesus were alive in bodily form today, I’m convinced he would spend his time in jails, prisons, and ghettos. He came to provide inner freedom to the oppressed and outcasts of society, while the learned and wealthy had no use for him,” Jack points out. “And since Christians recognize that he is still very much alive through the Holy Spirit, it is not surprising to notice His presence being richly evident in the jails and prisons.”

“Jimmy Jack: The Alcoholic Teacher” was written for entertainment, humor, enlightenment, and instruction. By sharing his story, Jack hopes readers will recognize the amazing love of God. “I hope you will share my experiences, and find something in it that will improve your own personal journey as we all must work out our own salvation. And I further hope you will discover the specific plan that the Creator has designed uniquely with you in mind,” he concludes. For more details about the book, please visit
