hands on BibleEvery Christmas, Prison Fellowship's Angel Tree program mobilizes churches to minister to hundreds of thousands of children by delivering a gift and the gospel message on behalf of their incarcerated parents. But another gift will be made available to the children this year.

Since 1982, Angel Tree - a ministry of Prison Fellowship - has delivered more than 10 million gifts to children on behalf of nearly 4.2 million imprisoned parents. But this year for the first time, a copy of God's Word will be made available them.

James Ackerman, president and chief executive officer of Prison Fellowship, explains how people will be able to receive a free Bible. 

"Every household that our volunteers visit will receive the opportunity to send us back a card requesting a completely free Bible - either English or Spanish,” Ackerman says.

"This is such a wonderful opportunity for churches all across the country to participate in the real meaning of Christmas and now provide those households an opportunity to receive an absolutely free, full-text, high-quality Adventure Bible in either English or Spanish," he tells OneNewsNow. 

Ackerman anticipate that some 140,000 families this Christmas will receive a Zondervan Children's Bible.

The Angel Tree program operates in all 50 states.
