In Ministry to the Incarcerated, Dr. Covert uses his experiences as both police officer and retired state prison chaplain to examine the problems of the incarcerated, specifically the stressors which are obstacles to a prisoner's personal and spiritual development. In his analysis he provides both secular and biblical themes that promote penal reform and offender rehabilitation.
Ministry to the Incarcerated also provides instructional outlines for staff and volunteers, as well as Dr. Covert's experience being the chaplain for Pennsylvania's first execution in thirty-three years.
