Author of Silence in the Face of Injustice

About the Author

Gary W. Hardy completed his PhD in Christian Leadership through Louisiana Baptist University. He is a recovered sex addict, a former sex offender, thief, deceiver, and manipulator; but is he also living proof of the merciful grace of a loving God and that no sinner-no matter how evil-is beyond redemption and usefulness. He is a contributor to Under the Covers: A Message of Hope, a book published by ICL Global for use in ministering to sex abusers and offenders. Since 2013 Gary has written the annual Exodus Prison Ministry devotional calendar that is sent to thousands of prisoners around the United States. He also contributes his writings to several prison ministry newsletters and publications. Since 2014 he has served as a peer recovery coach and a group facilitator in the Arizona Department of Corrections Sex Offender Education and Treatment Program. His unofficial work includes helping his brothers in prison find hope and healing even in the midst of troubled pasts and difficult circumstances, through the love and grace of a merciful God. Gary's vision is to challenge and encourage the church-the ekklesia to help bring redemption, reconciliation, and a merciful justice to those who have committed a sex offense and to help insure that there are no more victims. Gary is proof that no one is disposable and no one is beyond the reach of God's grace. See more about Gary and his work at
