Foreword by Sr. Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking.
Gripping account of one man?'s spiritual transformation while in solitary confinement.
Clayton Fountain was thought by most to be beyond all hope of redemption. Serving several life sentences for five violent murders (four of them committed while behind bars), he was condemned to live out his days in solitary confinement, entombed in a cell of concrete and steel built specifically for him at the U.S. Penitentiary in Marion, Illinois. Yet even this ruthless murderer was not beyond the limits of divine mercy. Although he never again emerged from his cell, Fountain undertook a profound spiritual journey that led to a genuine religious conversion and his decision to become a hermit and a brother in the Trappist Order. Now, eight years after his untimely death, W. Paul Jones, who served for six years as Fountain?'s spiritual advisor, shares his inspiring story.
