    1 thought on “Lessons from San Quentin: Everything I Needed to Know about Life I Learned in Prison

    1. Book about a man that had everything, then lost it all and went to prison for fraud. Tells his life in San Quentin and how he changed his life from the inmates actions and his observations from prison life.

    2. Easy read and straight to the point. It's refreshing and encouraging for me to read the story of Bill Dallas. The thought of jail/prison can be so discouraging and frustrating for many of us in jail ministry. As dark of a place as it is, and as inappropriate for human as it seems, surprisingly the prison to Bill Dallas was a place where he found transformation and hope through Christ and also through his friendship with the Lifers. For example, the lack of personal choices in prison would be a h [...]

    3. I find these kind of stories irresistable. This one has both good and bad qualities being about prison and finding God.I do think there is some correlation to being down and out and finding God. This book focused on how men in prison do this. The glimpses of life there were fleeting but felt true, and not for "show".The good: I do very much like the author's chapters on self image and self obsession, I think his take on why prisoners return to prison is the best reason I've ever read. Which is t [...]

    4. Wow, what an amazing book. I was quickly drawn into Bill's story of transformation from a selfish, godless human, to one devoted to his faith and living for God. This is a must read for all that are in the prison ministry, know of someone in the prison ministry, or are or have been in prison. I only wish it were currently available in paperback so I could order several copies for the inmates that I write to.What a wonderful message of how God can transform our lives if only we allow Him to. Ever [...]

    5. This book provides a great contrast to so many fictionalized accounts of prison. The author goes to prison, suffers terribly because of his grief over his fate, then begins to recover when one of the 'lifers' persuades him to accept a job as a sweeper. Thus begins the former wheeler-dealer's penitence (in the classic sense) and his recovery, much of which involves learning the value of work--even very simple work--and the role work plays in a man's life. From the lifers he learns to accept his f [...]

    6. I really liked this book. A great read for any Christian. Two favorite quotes: " Christianity is not something you do, it is about the relationship with God and who you become through that divine connection." AND "Hope is not just a good feeling about what's to come. Hope is an improbable, but unshakable certainty that things will work out."I really enjoyed his views on how God has a plan for each of us, He will reach out to us and transform our lives if we will turn our lives to him, slow down [...]

    7. A captivating story detailing the changes God wrought in the life of Bill Dallas as he served a 5 year sentence in one of the nation's toughest prisons. Here he shares the lessons God taught him through San Quentin's "Lifers" and he passes those revelations along to the reader in an engaging and conversational style. The lessons are practical and applicable to every Christian walk and is a testimony to the amazing power of God to change and transform lives and lead even the most hopeless of soul [...]

    8. I picked up this book out of blind curiosity. Boy am I glad I did. The book was very well written. This is the story of an overly ambitious and unethical young man who was one-part smart and two-parts greedy with an ego the size of Mount Rushmore. The trail of events leading to his conversion read like a movie. His landing in San Quentin probably saved his life both physically and, more importantly, spiritually. Lots of gems and nuggets in this book. Get it and you'll be glad you did.

    9. This book offers simplistic advice about how to live life from the perspective of a prison inmate. Although it means well, the pat answers and uninvolved suggestions for how to live the gospel left me unsatisfied. The author suggests that if you follow his rules then your life will all work out great. I wish it were that easy. If you have never read anything concerning Christianity this is a very simplistic explanation.

    10. (Actual rating 3 1/2 stars) The story of Bill Dallas and his life before, during, and after his five-year prison sentence was very encouraging. Though I have some differences with elements of Dallas' theology and philosophy, his understanding of God's sovereignty over every element, good and bad, in our lives was powerfully demonstrated. His story is a brilliant example of the practical truth of complete forgiveness given to those submitted to God.

    11. A man who had what people nowadays wants in life, and 1 day everything turns upside downI've read many books but this one is one of the 3 books that so far I'd love the most. I can relate to every page. If he was literally put in prison, we on the other hand, caged in prisons of life's challenges and obstacles. Highly recommended!.

    12. Bill lets us into his life through his telling of the lessons God taught him the hard way. What a blessing he is to the church because of what God did in his life. Thank you for the many relevant principles shared within the pages of this book.

    13. The principles were good. The writing was mediocre. I liked the book, but I would liked to have had a bit more of the author's personal story. His three fold chapter division was ok, but it disrupted the flow to some degree.

    14. Let life come to you rather than trying to retain control over everything is a transforming principle from Lessons from San Quentin that I needed to hear. I did not think it was “a riveting story” like Chuck Colson did, but a worthwhile read with practical lessons.

    15. Could have told his story and the lessons he learned with far fewer words and pages. Encouraging, but too slow and redundant in many parts.

    16. There where bits of his life. The bulk of the book was biblical passages that changed his life. I learned a few things and got a new insight into others.
