AFR and Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry Coordinate Project for Prisoners

In partnership with Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry (OCPM), Ancient Faith Radio is bringing back the paperback edition of the Orthodox Study Bible New Testament and Psalms. This Bible, which has been out of print for two years, is in high demand among those who prefer a more affordable Orthodox Study Bible and those who serve America's prison population, because the majority of state and federal prisons will not allow inmates to have hardback books/Bibles.

"Recently, OCPM was only able to send 231 Bibles to those in prison because we were out of stock, yet our demand was much greater" said Chaplain Patrick Tutella, Executive Director of OCPM.

"For people whose lives have been chaotic, the Orthodox study Bible provides a blueprint to order," said Chaplain Patrick.

"We are very pleased to be in partnership with OCPM in the reprint of this resource to assist priests and chaplains who visit those in prison and spread the ancient Christian faith to the modern world," said John Maddex, CEO of Ancient Faith Ministries. Those who buy a paperback Orthodox Study Bible at the regular price of $24.95, you can purchase a second Bible at 25% off the purchase price to be distributed through OCPM.
