Publisher's Summary

In January 1983 Burt Folsom read a story in Time about Mitch Rutledge, a man on death row with an IQ of 84 who said he was sorry for what he did. "Forget him", the last line of the story read. But Burt wrote Mitch a letter and discovered a man more interesting and intelligent than the article revealed.
Burt and his wife, Anita, began a friendship with Mitch and saw him become a leader and role model for others in prison, teaching himself to read and write (starting with copying down the spelling of items he knew from TV commercials) and becoming a national spokesman on prison life.
Death on Hold is the amazing story of their friendship and of grace, reconciliation, and redemption for a man without hope who was given a future.

Great understanding of life in prison in Christ

I loved this book. As a minister inside prisons to inmates, this book gave me exceptional understanding of the realities that the men were dealing with. Wonderful book.
